Yes, I’ve been taking some blogging time off for Thanksgiving. I was feeling pressure from myself to continue with repurposing things during the holiday and I hated that feeling, so I decided to take a few days off and enjoy some low key family time without even looking at the sewing machine.
I am posting a new repurposing project today, though! I took a pair of old black pants and turned them into “skinny pants”. My method is a bit different this time than my skinny jeans tutorial.
Here are the pants I started out with:
I turned them inside out and marked where I wanted to take them in (I used a pair of skinny jeans that fit well as a guide)
Next, I pinned them so that the 2 layers would stay lined up evenly and then I sewed along the chalk mark.
And done! A new pair of pants!
