Based on a True Sweater

Eighties Love


I made some fun pants a little while ago, to show off my long legs in as garish a manner as possible. I've inflicted them on the world a few times recently, and Rachael kindly took a photo for me.

As usual, click for big. Sometimes when I sew, I don't feel like doing the detail work of making small pieces like pockets or belt loops. I buy jeans at thrift stores for a few dollars and use them for parts. I love the way that worked out for these pants. They're long, tight, tapered, stretchy, comfortable and hilarious. I love them, but I have to be feeling pretty good to wear them out of the house.

Oh my goodness. These really should not be awesome, and yet they are.

I'm loving the pockets. They look great on your legs, I'm not sure I could pull off the look (actually I don't feel like I can pull off anything more than plain black most days). You rock.

heh - eighties love! i went crazy on Crazy Pants in the 80s. i always wore an off-the-shoulder sweater in either white or black, and would make pants with of the most outrageous patterns/prints i could find. i was wearing animal prints long before they became trendy. heh.

The fact that you not only made those but you wear them out in public makes me worship you even more.
