For the Love of Pants!

While at the fabric store searching out lycra for the mermaid costume, I came across the most awesome rainbow fleece ever.  I couldn’t resist – I’m a sucker for rainbows.  But this time, it wasn’t for me.  I’ve got Burning Man on my brain, trying to think of all of the cool costumes I can make (yes, make) for myself and Ellette before we leave in August. (Count it – 3 weeks).  And the desert gets chilly at night, so cold weather costumes are essential.

The rainbow fleece became a pair of pajama bottoms for Ellette.  I used a pair of her jeans as a template for this wide leg pants, and have yet to add the drawstring to the waistband, but I’m fairly certain they will fit her.

Since I had the serger out for the mermaid costume, I did a couple passes with the fleece, not that fleece needs to be hemmed but because I like the clean finish it gives garments.

On the agenda for the next month?  Two epic unicorn outfits (1 for me, one for her), a couple of vests, scarves, and hats.  A few painted parasols, and a pair of decorated swim goggles for Ellette.
