So, I found these atrocious plaid pants at the thrift store. I thought originally that they might be cute as shorts, but the waist line was so high that I would have had to cut it off and make a new one… I was a little worried that was beyond my scope of experience. Unfortunately, I already own these ugly things so now I have to figure something out to do with them.
Since the crotch of these pants seems to be the epicenter of my problem, I decided to remove it. Now, don’t think I’m getting all weird, I’m not talking about making a pair of crotchless pants. I decided to make a skirt! I started by cutting off the pants not too far below the offending area.
After that I had to make a new seam, because leaving the original inseam would look very strange…
I’ve got to be honest. This is absolutely the BEST thing to come off my sewing machine, ever. I’m a little bit in love and I can’t wait to wear this on the beach!
I also decided to make a matching headband with the left over material! Ahhhhhhh It’s so good to have my mojo back again!
Have a lovely Sunday! I’m off to eat my hummus!
