“love this pattern”

Want a fun new way to put those no longer needed t-shirts to good use? How about whipping up some super fun ruffly and kicky pants out of them? The Rings-of-Ruffles design has a slender/slim "yoga" pant fit with a gentle flair at the hem. This pattern has been recently taken "up a notch" and now includes pattern and tutorial for 2 different lengths. Go ruffle C R A Z Y or play it sweet and subtle...either way, this pattern has got you covered.

Each sewing pattern is color coded to make them easy to put together and to keep sizes accurate. Each PDF also includes a very detailed tutorial with color photographs and diagrams demonstrating each step of creating the design. This PDF now includes a cutting layout diagram just in case you prefer your fabric off of the bolt instead of from the thrift store (or the bags and boxes on their way to the thrift store) and a size chart. The tutorials are written with terminology explained so you will know what it means to say things such as "right sides together". :) My hope is to create PDFs that will take away the frustration of using a traditional big box store pattern and put the fun back into sewing.
