Sweet Dreams

I made these wide-leg lounge pants for my Mom for her upcoming birthday. The pattern is from Amy Butler's book "In Stitches". I had to give the pants to my Mom a little early because I knew they would need some adjusting. The pattern indicates the inseam to be 32" which is my inseam length, so I adjusted the hem accordingly for my Mom. When I tried them on, the length was still perfect for me. Unfortunately, when I redid the hem the lace ended up right on the bottom of the pants, but they still look okay.
I ordered the fabric and lace from my favorite online shop, Fabritopia. The lace is her gorgeous green lace, and I think it is fabulous. I ordered some of the hot pink lace in my last purchase, and she has tempted me by including swatches of the yellow and purple.
