This is from a pattern that I drafted a looooong time ago.  Like two kids, 25 years and 30 pounds ago.  I was cleaning out my closet a while ago and found my "mini me" size  and decided to make a new one for my current, mature,  fluffy body (its so fluffffffeeeee).  What prompted this is a contest that is going on at  It is a sewing site that I have been following for a while and it is about reviewing one's experiences with sewing patterns. It is a nice source of sewing info.
It turned out pretty well. The elastic is comfortable and the leg ruffles do a nice job of camouflaging certain hind areas if you know what I mean.

It never really occurred to me to post some of the stuff I did when I was designing but my renewed interest in sewing may just prompt me to find some old pics to post.  

Hope you have a great week!

I know, long time no post... What can I say life happens.  New job, kids busy in school and activities and I want to start sewing again.  I have taken a new position where I am interacting with people a lot more so I need new clothes but that is a story for another day.  In the mean time, I made this cute little pop up match box for use as a Halloween treat container. I have a tutorial on how it was made at THE HYBRID CHICK

Have a super week!
