DIY: Burda Harem Pants....It's all about the pants!

I picked up this pattern for $1.99 I have seen others just make theses free hand but I thought the pastern is cheap why not! It was worth the $1.99, no guessing on the measurements or the fall of the crotch. If I want to make them longer it's a breeze to add the legs to the pattern. Mori uses these type of pants for dance but these can be for dance or a night out on the town. No top views as I wanted the attention on the pants, they are fabulous on their own, aren't' they? 

PATTERN Review: Excellent, Easy and I will use it again.

The fabric was an African inspired dress/Moo-Moo 
(as my mom would have called it) from Ross for $10.99.
I knew I was going to make a pair of pants 
when I purchased this dress about four months ago.

I opted to add eyelets for the waist string on these. 
This was my first time trying this 
and I did a A-M-A-Z-I-N-G job!

Tools for the eyelets. Directions are 
on the package...very easy.

My serger is still in the garage so 
I used bias tape for my seams.

see AMAZING just like I said! 
That white cording was bothering me and I painted 
it bronze for the pictures cause that's all I could 
find around the house. Afterwards 
I changed the cording to a sparkly gold.

This is where we started going off 
course in our photo shoot! 
I am going to share with you what I get on a 
daily basis, Mori shaking her butt!
