I've been snapped by the Google bus! Hahahaha!
Yep, you see right, that's ol' Johnny boy coppin' a smoke at The Stone. I've finally made it! Thanks to Scott Lovenberg for the tip!
I've been wanting to try may hand at making some more pants, and Bev let me borrow one of her sewing machines and a bunch of old jeans. Friggin' like 7 hours later, I've got a big ol' denim Salwar! Thanks to this site for the directions. Harry Potter marathon in the background makes it easy to while away the day on a goofy project like this. Love those magical little bastards!
Ideally, this would have taken much less time; the pattern is super simple. However, I had to cut 3 pairs of jeans apart to make enough fabric to follow the pattern. When I finally finished them, I stepped into them and resembled a cruel caricature of a weight-loss ad. I de-huged them by about 10 inches until they became appropriately large enough for a pair of big clowny pants. Grommets and a drawstring, and Viola! Another day closer to death. Probably better for cooler weather, but I'll give them a shot out here in the prairie! It was SEW much fun! Even more than it may SEAM.
