Description

I bought a pair of green pants at a thrift store a few years back with the idea of lowering the waistband. Instead, I opted to make a high-waisted skirt.

Material Notes

No idea. Cotton? Polyester? Blend? Green and tough.

    Thank you! I’m so excited to find a site where people can exchange ideas for how to remake (and make) clothing. It’s so much more fun to wear things you’ve tailored and styled yourself. :)

    One word – adorable! I have a similar pair of green pants (which are now too large for me) that I just might turn into a skirt thanks to your inspiration!!
