I have your typical wide leg
ugly-sweatpants-that-you throw-on-30-seconds-after-you-get-home -from-work-pants.
Oh c'mon, you know I'm not the only one that does this.....
Anyway, these pants needed a quick pick me up STAT!
These pants are too big, and bulky. I decided to give them some new life.
The first thing I did was put them on and I knew what I had to do!
I decided on a capri-type harem pant that I could lounge around in, clean the house, pay bills, pull weeds, work out....ok, probably just lounge around.
When I was wearing the pants, I made a small snip a couple inches higher than I wanted them to hit.
I measured higher because I wanted to make cuffs from the leftover leg fabric.
These pants are super basic, and boring just as capris.
I decided to jazz them up a bit with a side stripe of ribbon I had in my stash.
I layed out the ribbon, cut a nice straight line, and literally glued it to the side seam.
I used fabric glue that can go in the wash.
I folded, trimmed, and sewed on the cuffs with cat fur and all....
And there you have it! Comfy cropped pants to lounge around in!
See you next time!
