Reuse those old jeans
I saw this on http://youcanmakethis.com
and thought, looks easy enough. you can actually purchase this pattern there if you can't follow me.
Unfortunately i forgot to take pictures as i went along, but i will give you some diagrams and some fine instructions.
I make these for my girls, they really love them.
After you get your pattern drawn, take it to your material. this is where the hole measurements come in.
Now we have a 4 inch top triangle, but we will have an inseam of an inch on each side, so it will leave use with a 2 inch top.
Since our measurement was 24 inches we will need 12 triangles to cut.
So if you are using 2 different fabric, cut 12 of each fabric (remember 2 leg holes) if 3 different fabric cut 8 of each. etc.
so now you have your fabric cut.
Take the amount needed for one leg and sew the long sides together. Place right sides together, then sew it will form a circle.
you got to do this twice. on for each leg.
One thing is if you dont have a serger use an overcast stitch after you sew each triangle. so you would be sewing it twice, it just gives you a stronger stitch and a better finish.
ok so now you have 2 circles of triangles. all there is left is to sew them to the legs.
Place right sides together pin in place and sew them around. use the same overcast stitch or serger with this too.
do to other leg.
all thats left is to hem the gaucho leg up.
Use an Iron and fold twice. stitch around.
If i have explained it right, and you understood, your project should look something like this.
If i have not, and you have a big mess, SORRY.
But you can get a pattern at http://youcanmakethis.com
Its in made from jeans section.
Save the spare jean cut offs, you can make a cute top out of it.
Use the seam at the bottom for straps, add a zipper or snaps. use you imagination.
