**My second time with this pattern. My first pair was reviewed on PR. This time, I didn't make pockets and I added an inch and a half of length to the inseam.**
I fell for this fabric a couple of months ago at Joann's. Something (the wierdo fairy perhaps?) possessed me to make pants with it. And yes, those kind of pants, tee-hee-hee...
I was supposed to make a full skirt, and I planned to wear a yellow tank, or maybe my yellow cardi, but the fabric already has a lot of yellow in it. Instead of getting teased for looking like a banana (in Hammer pants mind you - double whammy!!) I opted to go dark on top. The green tones it down somewhat, but still lets the color-richness show. It is an extremely bright and bold print, the photos do it no justice .I like it.
