what do you think about wrap pants? i think they look like they'd be really comfy.
They are. I have a couple of pairs that I really like. Be careful when you sit down I was throwing at the pottery wheel one day with my wrap pants on. I looked down and I had leg showing up to my undies.
They look funky, I think! (Although I've never worn any)
those look really comfortable and did i mention they were also very pretty?
I love them! I have a pair, and they are so comfy, especially when it's hot, but you don't like wearing short or so
Give them to me now!
i'm on a sewing kick right now
i found instructions on how to make them. so i'll see how it goes. i have a couple of other projects i'm working on first though.
oh ya, these are the instructions i found in case anyone else is feeling a textile creation urge.
AH! I got a pair 2 weeks ago, they are the GREATEST!! They're sooo comfy and look totally rockinI love them I want twenty pairs lol
maybe im just a little slow, but.. i LOVE wrap pants but seem to always have trouble putting them on... not sure whats wrong with me! i love em, though. i'll probably end up getting a pair anyway
they are awesome. they kind of remind me of a cloth diaper... not in a bad way though. I really like them a lot!
ok i spend a lot of time changing diapers.
but there's no velcro or snaps or snappie! and no layers of pul or hemp or fleece. i can see the dipe shape at the front where the ties are though. LOL!
i used to spend a lot of time changing dipes too. (all custom designed and made by moi!). now the little one is pretty much out of them.
what did you make your diapers out of? i really want to use cloth diapers but the ones that i have arent really that great, i need something that will soak up the pee better, haha
mostly fitted pocket dipes, with microfleece inners and flannel outers. stuffers either made out of old towels (yup! worked very well and still pretty trim) or i used fat quarters of flannel to stuff when i wanted something extra trim. and then wool butt sweaters as covers. at nihgt we just doubled up on stuffers and never had problems with leaks. we were too broke to order in designer fabrics like malden mills fleece, so we just ended up using both recycled fabrics and discount bin fabrics.
I think they r beautiful.................in a week i am going to mexico...i plan to pic up a pair down there...

Hahaha...oh man, you remind me of myself. I got a pair of really nice black wrap pants a couple of months ago. In the store, I picked them up, but I had no idea how to do them. So the woman selling them had to show me on herself how to do it. Then she gave them to me so I could go into the changing room and try it. I went...and stayed in there for about 10 minutes going "I...don't...UNDERSTAND!!!" hahaha. I had the saleslady and my mom outside going "What's taking so long? You ok in there?" Finally I gave up and came outside. The lady had to show me AGAIN. She finally took me, and told me to try putting them on out in the store over my jeans...and I finally did it. I was cracking up so much. The owners of this small little hippie store probably thought I was the slowest thing...or that I was completely high (but I wasn't!)...haha.
Luchi makes the best wraps...she's amazing
she was gonna make me some i think they look really cool
Comfortable & cute!
