gaucho refashion

So here we have the other piece of the liz claiborne set:

And here is what I made.

I've been so excited about this pattern for a long time, because I could see the potential for modifying it.  This is my first attempt at it.  There are no modifications to the pattern for these shorts outside of eliminating the facing on the pockets, though the fit needs to be worked on a little.
I used the inside of the fabric for the outside, so that it wasn't quite so bright...I'm really glad I did, or they might have looked like pajamas.  They're just as comfy as pajamas, though!


  1. this is so brilliant!
    I'm inspired to go buy some crazy pants at the thrift store now.

  2. love these! great thinking using the inside!!! i will definally have to try this!!!
