    I have a fabric question for making sandbox pattern pants. Has anyone used linen for these and if so how did it work out? I am relatively new to sewing, and haven’t really made clothes from linen before. Will this be harder/ easier about the same in terms of difficulty? Any thoughts or words of advice please>

    Depending on the weight of the linen (I wouldn’t use something like hanky weight), it should work about the same. I imagine they’ll feel really nice in linen. You’ll want to be certain you finish all your seam allowances though so you don’t have a lot of fraying. Please post in the flickr pool when you’ve finished!

    Several popped up in the flickr group when I searched for ‘linen pants’. I think it will work great!

    Thank you Maraya -I hadn’t thought of the weight issue and was actually considering sewing with some lighter linen (not hanky weight exactly but lighter than what I can make pants out of), so maybe I’ll try the pants in heavier weight. I loved both the pictures whose link you sent Beachmom. Love the look, and now I am definitely making one. Thanks again!

    I’ve used linen to make Sandbox pants – they are no more difficult to sew and they look great when finished! Happy sewing 🙂
