These are made from a pair of too-small "Wish" brand jeans I found for a dollar. They had that engineer-stripe material that overalls are often made with. And, obviously, not enough room for my butt to fit in. So I cobbled them together with another pair of pants (also too small), added wide side panels, pockets, and many many appliques done in purposefully-patchy style. Other than one of the pockets ripping through, they've held up nicely through many washings. I lurve 'em.
