Amy Butler's Wide Leg Lounge Pants Vintage 70's Style!

I ab-SO-lutely LOVE me some Amy Butler!! I headed out to Barnes and Noble and picked up her book "In Stitches" on Friday.


BOY HOWDY am I glad I did!! I have been hording a nice sized little stash of vintage 70's sheets and pillowcases. (perhaps you may have seen the apron I made from one of them here??) Well...one of those fun little sheets just became my new "lounge pants", using the pattern included in the book! I lived in them all weekend!!!! Can't wait to make more!

Those are so cute!
You are a fantastic seamstress!
I remember making clothing in home ec. in Jr. High...UGH! The teacher made us wear the outfits...I was so embarassed! Therefore I do not sew clothing...But yours look fantastic!

Those pants are too cute and I love the aprons that you made! How come when I stop by a garage sale, all I see are ugly clothes, and broken toys??? I have a new blog and I will be checking back, stop over for a visit! Thanks, Sue

First, I just wanted to say those pants are super cute! Second, yes we should totally do lunch sometime. Third, I think we might come down for the Rodeo in March and we should all go to dinner.
