The night before we left home for Telluride, I found myself all packed with time to spare. Can you believe it? Good ol’ procrastinating me with time to spare! That was definitely a first. What’s a girl to do? Sew, of course.
I decided it was high time that I make myself some wide-leg lounge pants from Amy Butler’s In Stitches. So many crafty bloggers have made them and they all love them, so I thought why not? I wish I had some wonderful vintage sheet to use, but I didn’t. It doesn’t matter – I love them anyhow!
The wide leg part is just that: wide. At first I thought they were maybe a bit too wide, but the more I wear them, the more I love them. I will definitely make these again. Not only are they super comfy, they were fast to make. It took me 2 hours to make these from the time I started tracing the pattern to pulling the drawstring through the casing. I did use my serger for all the seams I could which probably sped it up a bit. Now that I have the pattern ready to go, I imagine the next pair will come together even faster.
I love vacation. And lounging. Lounging on vacation? Bliss.
