I got this fabric for my birthday and I thought of Fireworks and 4th of July. I wanted to make a skirt out of it but I wasn’t sure what kind of skirt I wanted to make. When I came across Made Circle skirt tutorial I thought that is perfect! She shows how to make it for kids and adults.
I found these floral pants at my local thrift store. They were a little to big for me but I loved the pattern. The pants cost me just $2 and about an hour of my day.
I used a pair of pants that I wear as my pattern and added extra for seam allowance.
The pants had a side zipper and a small section of elastic on each side of the waistband. I liked the elastic so I moved my pattern over so I could keep that part as well as the pockets that were there too. This made it so I didn’t have to sew a zipper on.
The pants didn’t have belt loops so I made some using some leftover fabric. I made the belt loops about 1″ x 3″. And I fold them under about 1/2″ to sew them to the pants leaving the belt loops about 1/2″x 2″.
