Capris altered into Shorts

Added Jul 15, 2008

Los Angeles, Cal...






These capris were not flattering, what with the bell shape at the calf. PLUS there was tight elastic and drawstring holes at the waist. So I cut them into shorts, and removed the elastic and drawstring holes. Voila! :)

Material Notes

existing black stretch cotton capris

    Yep, just took the waistline a tad shorter than the holes. Thanks! :)

    Big improvement! The new version looks great. I’ve never understood the cropped-yet-flared look…
