My mother has heard about the rising cost of fabric and refashioning and is supporting my habit with hand-me-downs. Thanks Mom!
These very large pants came in a recent batch. Daughter saw them and really liked the fabric, but was daunted at the fit.
(NOTE: My mother is a little woman. These were not her pants. I don’t know who they belonged to, but they were nearly new.)
Pants? Nope. I am learning that you can only cut down so much.
But, a skirt?
I should taken pictures of the rework, but I used the original waistband (picked out by Daughter) and the legs turned upside down and trimmed became the a-line skirt shape.
Total work time was about 1 hour 15 minutes. Not bad for an a-line skirt with a waistband. And the price? Perfect!
