Description

I skipped the step where you rip out all of the seams and make fancy panels.
I used the pieces of fabric from right below the cut line.
I trimmed them until the had matching diagonal sides.
One side was bigger than the other to start.
I sewed them to the front and back, trying to match the center seams.
I was mostly successful.
I used part of the lower leg to make the side inserts.
Made a slit in the back when I realized I wouldn’t be able to climb stairs otherwise.
Pressed and re- hemmed.
Paired it up with my cool refashioned shirt!!

I am consoled by the fact that many of my store bought skirts do this bunchy business as well. It was more comfy to fold the waist over. Once the attack of the lazys is done, I may take the waistband off all together.
