I made my son a pair of cargo pants from these two pairs! I just laid my pattern pieces on top of the pants and cut them out. I couldn't believe it took 2 pairs of Dad's pants to make one pair for my son, but they are cargos, so lots of pockets and extras.
I also made him 2 other pieces of clothing and a three piece coordinating outfit for my daughter too! You can see it all, along with gobs and gobs of cute photos over at Skirt Fixation!
