After almost a year (maybe longer?) since I first laid eyes on the lace bottoms made by With-Hearts-in-our-eyes and then famously worn by Rumi from Fashiontoast, I knew I had to somehow recreate them for myself. Originally I wanted them in black…but then thought why not in a lighter color? Like CREAM? Sadly I couldn’t find anything in cream so instead I found this peachy lace.
Word to the wise: lace is incredibly finicky to sew. Several times my machine decided to eat up the fabric around the holey bits and I almost had to start from scratch. Otherwise….it really didn’t take too long (albeit too complicated to write instructions for). I think a good starting point would be to take your favorite bell bottoms, trace the shape of the leg (starting under the crotch) and lay it over your fabric. The top part of the pant should be something stretchy like jersey cotton. I sorta winged it so mine aren’t perfect, but we all need to start somewhere!
