I was in a bit of a refashion funk this weekend. Not feeling terribly creative. Finding zero inspiration in my refashion closet. So I decided to go back to the basics with a simple pants-to-skirt transformation. Enter these too-short dark denim Express trousers.
I started by cutting open the inseam.
I turned the pants inside out and folded them so the side seams were together. Then I sewed straight up the front and back seams with a straight stitch then a zig-zag stitch, and trimmed off the excess fabric.
I cut off the bottom 15 inches of the legs and gave my new skirt a new hem.
There's is nothing remarkable about this project. Nothing ground-breaking.
But sometimes you've gotta just do something to get yourself out of a funk.
And sometimes you get a great, versatile wardrobe staple out of it!
