|Here's looking at you, babe.|
|I'm working it.|
|Just look at that drape action!|

Here's how the pants looked 100 years ago, before I rehabbed them the first time.
|early jeans, cool at the time|
|at least they're pressed.|
But wait I did make improvements:
|Like unhem & stabilize for added length|
|remove pleated front & add new waistband|
I just noticed I never posted the top I made. Guess I really didn't like it as it was.
|Like this - too big and baggy all over.|
and some of the (hey!) tucks and pleats, and of course, the dusty mauve color.
But now I just love it with a few more horizontal tucks added at the bottom

Actually it creates a nice drape going to the side and around the back.
And here's the pattern from whence it came.
Much more is going on in the ol' sewing studio, but for now let's get on over to Patti's Not Dead Yet Style and hang out with the always amazing Visibles.
I've been all dresses all the time lately (with no skirts to be seen). And then these pants popped into the picture. What better way to celebrate them then with Sacramento's Share-in-Style: Skirts or Trousers. What do you choose?
