I started with these BIG pants:
I really liked the material, which is soft and has a nice pattern.
I found this idea on Pinterest, but I was unable to find the original webpage. It’s basically four long rectangles sewn together at the shoulders, down the front, and the sides, leaving openings for a “V” neck and arm holes. The four pieces of the legs made this perfect. I just had to turn the material upside down so that the widest parts were at the bottom.
Here is the result:
Instead of doing the recommended elastic zigzag at the waist, I made a belt out of the lining of a skirt I refashioned into a purse. I also made a little flower out of the scraps and two buttons.
What do you think?
