DIY: Pink Pants

About a month ago Jessica from What I Wore blogged about some pants that she made.  I become completely obsessed with them and decided this would be a great opportunity to kill multiple birds with one stone (spring break project, my itch to sew, wide leg pants, and to replicate these pants).  So I immediately ventured out to start on my little adventure.  



But it took me a month to complete.




You see, technically I know how to sew.  My sewing isn't clean and neat, and the only teaching I've had has been from my momma when I was a kid.  So needless to say there were many many "What am I doing?!" moments.







So anytime I felt flustered, I would just put the pants down and come back to them with a fresh mind.  It was only the other day that I finally figured out my dilemma.  I sewed my pockets on all wrong, which led to my pants being bubbly, not straight and smooth.  So I'd like to say that I've finally finished my pants, but after wearing them yesterday and looking at the pictures I took, I noticed I need to tailor them a bit more.    But overall, I'm quite pleased with myself.  Who knows, maybe I'll try to sew a pair of jeans next? 





I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is what our family photo will look like in a few years.
I can't wait.
note to self: get more sleep and never leave the house without bronzer again
