Description

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…
