Description

I saw this beautiful floral material sometime ago… and I often thought what can I make with this?? I liked the material so much! At first, my idea was for a wide scarf. But then it hit me: pants!! Out came the trusty NewLook 6948 pattern, and here it is! I’ve been hearing it non-stop ever since.. it is super super comfortable and cool. The material feels like a cotton blend (maybe with chiffon, its so soft :) I modified the pattern slightly by adding elastic to the bottom hems and a fold-over knit instead of a drawstring.

    whow, both your pants are wonderful! amazing, how the elastic hem can change the style completely….Do you ever get to wear warm pants in SA anyway?

      aww thank you :) I particularly love this version!! Indeed!!! it can get quite cold over here in SA!! I’m at the very very tip of Africa… our winters are mild, but still cold! I’ve tried my first jackets this here, and this wool one did the job for SA’s winters :)
