Second and final wearable art piece

A British DJ was referred to me as a quilter who was open to making quilts, etc. for others. This guy wanted pants like The Who (?) wore in the 60's. He picked the fabric and gave me a pair of pants as a template.

I took apart the inseam to flatten the pants and proceeded to sew on the patches. I started at the top, laid the fabric face down at the bottom of the waistband, folded it over and continued in that manner down the legs.

I quilted them with a darning foot, free motion. It was a lot of fun. Can you imagine wearing these?
