What I made:
Some classic high-waisted, huge-legged pants from an out-of-print Simplicity pattern
Fabric from the bargain table at Paron on 40th St.
When I made it:
October 2009 - during the era of unemployment! With the hopes of someday being gainfully employed, obviously, as I would never wear these pants in my real life and reserve them only for the office.
What I like about it:
The fabric - You almost can't tell because it's so tiny, but the fabric is actually black and white houndstooth, and I love me some houndstooth.
Unbelievably, the wide legs - These babies are comfortable. My knees have tons of breathing room!
