sweatpants








sweatpants - self made
top - terranova

i keep proving myself wrong this year..
i made and proudly wore bunch of unusual (for me) stuff
pants and more pants and shorts and leggings, that i used to hate
and here i am, sporting sweatpants
that are ranked second on my irrational hate list of clothing items
(no 1 is saved for jeans.. still hate jeans very much
and still think i won't wear them ever..
but who am i kidding, i'll probably end up making them too)
..
i've actually made sweatpants before
and still own and occasionally wear that pair
but, although cool to look at, those are not the most practical of pants
with all that extra fabric in crotch area
..
but these are pretty much perfect
(except when it comes to pattern matching
they are slightly off and it bugs me, big time)
they are great travel pants
great for camping, lounging by fire, hiking, workout
and i even wore them to the local pub one night
(and my grandma is crazy about them
she requested a pair too)

  4. Well, these are way cooler than the average pair of sweatpants. Love that you wore them to the pub! They are awesome.

  5. It is usually right at the apex of my irrational hate of something that I end up making it. I guess I like proving myself wrong all the time. (Who else is going to argue harder with myself?) Anyhoos, these are at the top of my list to make this year and I hope I can pull it off as coolly as you have! (Love the sheer-back top, too.)

  7. Your grandma sounds awesome! And these are pretty cool for a pair of sweatpants... I wouldn't be caught dead wearing sweatpants in public... but maybe with this kind of print it could work out :p
