After sewing these pants, I washed my hands and the water turned gray. That seemed a little weird. Then I wore the pants. Oh how soft is this fabric! Oh how comfortable are these pants (made from a lengthened version of my pattern for exercise shorts)
|This is before adding the waistband and hem.|
You can see the gusset. The fabric is a little lightweight for pants,
they are more like lounging pants to wear at home.
Oh my! This was conversation-worthy with the husband. Yes, I had pre-washed it. Then I remembered Claudine's post and her experience with mulching. I will wash the fabric and these pants several more times, with a white cloth in the load, until the water runs clear. I have been thinking about that sparkly blue fabric, too (I won her giveaway!) and I want to sew a jacket just like Claudine's creation. She won't mind blatant copying, will she? I need to hunt down a separating zipper.
