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.
