I just made a really cute skirt from a pair of men's pants. 50% cotton, 50% rayon, olive-y brown, basically a soft dark khaki. Homemade 30's style cotton bias waistband, patch pockets made from the cuffs of the pants.
I forgot to try it on before making the waist. Is anyone out there a 40" waist, 44" hip (I'm guessing that's a size 12-14ish?) if so, the skirt's yours! (I really don't want to resize the whole thing, easier just to start over, but this baby needs a home). First responder who's the right size gets it! (I also posted this as my facebook status, so it's the first responder on either my blog or my wall)
I'm living in my home town of San Pedro, CA, (forgotten suburb of LA), with my WONDERFUL husband, 3 children (and 3 cats, a fish, and 2 big dogs). I love sewing, knitting, embroidery, dancing, reading, and learning new crafts...(when I'm not busy playing trains or construction, of course...) I also love ellipses and parenthetical statements.
