Since the other skirt worked out so nicely, I thought I could do the same to a pair of short-ish jeans I had. They were not really shorts, and they were not really long.. they stopped right at the ankle. I call them high-water-pants. *snicker*
Needless to say I never wore them..
I opened the seam, pinned, tried it on and sewed this morning. Now I have a new skirt! YAYYY! Lookie here:
I made the seams purposely lighter in colour then the original seams, since they are right middle back and front. I did want to keep that “DIY” feel though and left the little “point” up front in the middle… The back has a slit and the the bottom hem will fringe out nicely after washing it a few times, I only zigzagged the edge there. I think it works.. specially with my hand knitted top! I’m liking it and so does DH. (Specially the rear view! hahahhaaha
I have one more pair of pants I want to do this too and then it is on to tops! Wish me luck!
I like how you can have a totally new wardrobe with just a few seams!
