Topturned Pants!

This is what came out when I played around with a hopelessly out-of-fashion pair of pants the other day. :-) I basically cut open the insides of the legs and added some rib fabric to the waist and the sleeve holes. Seriously, not much more than that! There are lots of pictures of the process on my blog, I’d love to have you over for a visit and some input! Of Dreams and Seams

Material Notes

An old pair of pants and some rib knit fabric

    Das ist mit Abstand die einfallsreichste Idee bisher ! Steht dir toll ! sollte ich demnächst mal eine alte Hose zum wegschmeissen haben, klaue ich mir vielleicht deine Idee :-))

    Your creativity amazes me! I cannot believe that you were able see this potential in a pair of pants. I especially love the back of the shirt.
