Pocket Capris - Shorts version

Sunday, July 15, 2012

UPDATE...Now available as a pdf pattern:

Elegance & Elephants

My second pair of Pocket Capris is done!  This time, I decided to shorten them and use a t-shirt for the material.  I wasn't sure how I'd like it in a knit fabric, but I'm very pleased with how they turned out...sooooo comfortable and soft.  This is a perfect addition to Anja's wardrobe, since she has very few pairs shorts (as you may have noticed, there's been a bit of a capri theme going on around here).  Instead of doing an inverted pleat for the inside leg, I gathered.  Other than that, I followed the original tutorial.  The tunic is part of this look that I made for Project Run & Play

Cutting up the original t shirt that I got it for $4.94.  A lot of the knit fabric I buy is from sale racks at Walmart or Joe.  There isn't a very great selection of knits around here at fabric stores.  

I didn't take many in-progress photos, but here's one...
