I’m quite proud of these little pants.  They used to (believe it or not) be my (magenta) linen pants.  But I really couldn’t pull off that color.  So they became Bea’s linen Big Butt Baby capris.

I just cut the pants open at the inseam, preserving the the existing drawstring closure at the bottom.  I was a little afraid the ties might be a nuisance or a danger, but we haven’t had a problem with them.

May I say again how much I love this pattern?  (I know I’m not alone.)  My only regret is that I don’t have time to sew a dozen more.

Here, have this lovely piece of bark.

A two-for-one shot: big-butt pants and a mama-made skirt.
