Animal Print Barb's

My how time flies. I actually finished these pants a few weeks ago but hadn't photographed them. These are style Arc's Barb's stretch pant. I am pretty happy with the fit, although with the photos I'm not so sure now. These went together well. The only adjustments I made was to shorten them by about 4 cm. The fabric was an internet buy from the US,, I think.
They are very comfortable. The fabric doesn't have a great deal of stretch so they are possibly a bit more snug around my middle than ideal. I do like this pattern, not quite as straight as the Elle pant, probably a better work pant. I tried to work out the placement so the dark was down the sides, it wasn't too bad.
I'm not sure what the fold around the bottom of my leg is. I have no idea why that is happening. My puppy wanted to be in on the action.
Maybe I need to shorten them a bit more. They are a bit of fun though. The fabric is quite thin so they will be good for between seasons. I will definitely be making these again.

  1. Love your animal Barbs. Looks fun and fab. The thinness of the fabric could be what is causing the folds. Enjoy your fun pants.
