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.
