I picked up this fabric at an Op shop a couple of weeks ago and thought it would be great to make some funky 3/4 length pants to wear around the house.

So today I got another pair of pants to make the pattern off.
I cut them out and sewed them up.
I was just about to fold over the top for the elastic when I noticed something a little odd.
The waist was rather small!
Then it hit me I had cut them out without leaving a seam allowance.
I tried them on - wiggling into them.
They fit snugly and needless to say I won't need to put any elastic in.
I went to hem them and my machine that was working perfectly 5 minutes before decided to be play up and not sew properly, so I unpicked the yucky looking hem and ironed my pants.
They will be the pants with the overlocked hems.

I am wearing them today and they are very comfy and look cute.


  1. I've done that before too! I'm glad they fit you.

  2. I love the fabric. They do look cute.
