This is my T-N-T Jalie pants pattern (# 968), shortened and taken in to become capris. Yes, that’s my able-pawed assistant there in the corner, giving everything a once-over sniff.
There is really nothing unusual about making these. I followed my standard pocket and fly zipper insertion methods. Took the legs in a bit, and of course shortened them to just below knee length.
These capris seemed a little plain, so I decided to jazz them up a bit with some pocket and yoke embroidery. That meant searching through the embroidery files for something suitable.
Bobbi Bullard, of Bullard Designs had the winner once again. She just has a knack for embroidery designs that work well on clothes. This design set is called “Curlies”. It may no longer be in release, as I couldn’t find it on her web site. One can opt for embellishing with crystals/nailheads or not. I chose nailheads, as crystals seems a bit presumptuous for capris.
Let Summer Begin!
