Description

I found some funny looking old man slacks in a thrift store and thought, “hey, I could use these probably…maybe… well they’re just so funny looking I have to take them anyway!” They were indeed funny looking.
So after spending some time wondering if the joke was worth the purchase, (1.00 is a pretty big deal…ish)I decided it was time to actually figure out something to do with the aforementioned pants. This is what happened. I think it turned out pretty well, and I’m pretty sure that a fitted t-shirt or long sleeve shirt will fit perfectly underneath for when it gets colder.

    That is gorgeous! Can you tell me what pattern you used, or post your pattern? I would love to try my hand at making a version of this. Thanks!
