I was going to put this on my blog but I was proud enough of it that I thought I would put it somewhere more visible. I noticed there's been a lot of talk on here lately of people buying plastic pants but I thought it would be fun to make some.
I started with an EVA vinyl shower curtain (has a more rubbery feel than PVC but still crinkles) and then added elastic and snaps like I've seen at a number of online stores. I purchased enough supplies to make about 4 of these for a grand total of $16.
This was my first experience using a sewing machine and I did a zigzag stitch on all of the elastic (thanks Angela Bauer for suggesting this in a really old thread). I might still go back and add extra reinforcement to the snaps because I'm not sure how long they will last with just a double layer of vinyl under them. I still have some fine tuning to do like make sure all of the little sticking out threads are cut off and trimming up the vinyl that falls outside the elastic but I'm happy with the result. At first I was worried that the butterflies might be a little too girly but then I decided that they aren't because they are blue butterflies.
Take a look below and let me know what you think.
