Lace Pants

1st project of 2012!  I love lace so when I saw this printed graphic lace I knew I had to make something modern but with a 70's style.

I initially chose a Vogue pattern but because I had under 2 meters of fabric the pattern would not fit.
  I then remembered the New Look 6354 pattern that I had sewn a year ago.  The pattern just barley fit.

Similar to the Vogue pattern...... I like this pattern on me as it has a wide waistband that 
sits on the hips.

It was an easy project to complete & I also made the "C" shorts version for the lining but left out the waistband.

My youngest has to get in the pic........

Sew you later!

Cool pants! I came accross your blog late in December 2011 and have been inspired by your projects. I grew up with a mom who was always sewing and making clothes for us (the fam.)I started sewing, with a needle and thread for my Barbies as a kid and in h.s. would do my own alterations. Now in my late 30's I've returned to sewing and love, love making new outfits. Can't wait to see your new stylish projects for 2012.
