Tubins' Quick-Not Tight Legging Pants-(Tube Pants) and Tops
I will call mine TUBINS' Cause... I made them big out of Scuba like fabric and they are just comfy lovin' them kinda pants.... Makin' them in every color... Don't wrinkle and great for work in ankle length.... Pictures of actual garments as soon as I fix my camera or get a new one... Okay... I made a second pair of tubins' and another drape shirt... yesterday before work. Today is my day off... I washed all my latest bought fabric I had not washed... laid out three fabrics for tubins... have teal and navy and new ones will be light turquoise, fuschia, and deep purple... I have skirts in all these colors so I have shirts to match from the suit blouses, but....
See why I call them tubins'... because of the type of fabric it is they are like two tubes.... comfy and soooo quick to sew.. Just lay it on doubled wide fabric and gives you two pieces... right and left leg.... Sew... hem... make your waistband circle elastic... fold over your waist piece over your elastic and turn under, top stitch close to edge leave opening at the front of the waistband in case you want to pull tighter.... done!!
The trick is the right tight knit 4 way stretch fabric to make the tube legs.... so comfy... Not tight like leggins but similar look without seeing all your fauxpas.
Wore these Teal Leggins with This Printed teal and black Top and had
a matching print scarf material found in the Treasure Hunt Room(2.97)
at G Street Fabrics
Makin' dark navy pants this morning and beautiful all over Camouflage type of bright blue and turquoise print in a silk stretch found in the Silk novelty sale bin at G street Fabrics
Wearing this to work today... It is 8 AM.... I am due at work at 1:00... so Earrings are made of the blouse fabric... pants cut out and will only take 2 seams and turn up hem and turn down elastic waist... Blouse front drape small turn under sew to back.... hem bottom(sized and sewn this many times) inset already hemmed sleeves and ready to go ...

These navy ones were corded like bengaline, but had the right 4 way stretch for tubins'....
2 pair done.... and 3 to go...
These pants...to be cut out Tuesday night and have 3 pair to wear to work.... Wednesday... Thursday... and Saturday..
Coral, red, fuschia, blue, teal, jeans black, black black.... I'm ready.... LOVING THE 2.97 Treasure Hunt Room.......
This Drapeneck is made a little different... easy, but the sleeves are different and I prefer regular set in sleeves.... It is a nice relaxed sleeve, but I wear jackets and it is bunchie for a jacket over it.... Next time I will make it with regular set in sleeves
This is the long drapeneck pattern in a stretch knit with a matching silk scarf with the same print found in the 2.97(Treasure Hunt Room)
You can see I have made a large slit up the sides for when I wear just the tubins' and the top... It is a very relaxed top and long.
These three patterns I got from Ebay ... buck or two with free shipping... My frequented pattern place...
