Yesterday,we went to some great sales at some thrift stores! :) One had all their clothes $1 each and the other had their entire store 60% off! We had so much fun!
Sales like these are the perfect opportunity to purchase things to repurpose!
SO, today I am not only sharing how my project turned out, but a tutorial on it! I have had people ask me a few times about how I trasform a pair of pants into a skirt- so I just took a few pictures as I went along.
Hopefully this will answer any questions that you may have had and will help you out!
- To find the right pair, look for a size or two bigger than what you would wear.
- Find some that are baggy/strait legged.
- Try your very best to get some without double top stitching.
- The darker the fabric the more flattering it will look.
Mark it all the way across, making sure the tops of the pants are together and the legs are as flat as possible.
On to the sides- I saw on Pinterest, a neat idea in dressing up the frumpy looking side seams.Add a gadget!
And here we are! Completely finished!
You now have a fixable, handmade, lovely skirt!
Wear it with modest pride! :)
wellies, goodwill, $10 // Skirt, made by me, $1.40 // Undershirt, thrifted, $2 // Purple Sweater, Ruff Hewn, thrifted, $1
Day by Day, is having a great sale over at her etsy shop! This is a fabulous opportunity to buy some of her lovely things for Christmas gifts! She does beautiful work and has a verity of colors featuring her products! Make sure to look through her shop before the sale is over! Oh, and her blog *sigh* make sure to give her a follow! If you like our blog (and Dr. Who:)), you will love her blog, I do! Though I have yet to watch any of her epic Dr. show. :)
Have you ever made a skirt from pants before ?
How was your Thanksgiving ?
Hoping for a wonderful Lord's day for y'all tomorrow!
