My first pants! (That I made)

I have set myself a challenge to only wear clothes that I have made myself during March (Me-Made-March), and although I already have quite a few garments in my wardrobe that fit this description, there are some glarring ommissions. So I decided to start at the bottom, so to speak, and crack (more puns!) pants making. I made the pattern by tracing my comfiest existing underwear, and experimented with different underwear elastics I bought on ebay.

Check my blog for more on the construction of these pants, and chat on garment creation in general:

    Fabu!!! My fav color combo, as well. I’ve always been curious about foundation garment-making.

    great idea, the me-made-march! if i manage to keep this idea in mind i could make a me-made-may, i’m afraid i would not have enough clothes for march. good luck for sewing :D

      Yeah! I was thinking that if Me-Made-March goes well, to then do Me-Made-May. Different season, different garments. I think I’ll use Me-Made-March to get publicity for Me-Made-May and launch this baby! Are you with me?!
