So I bought my husband a pair of khaki pants for Christmas
He proceeded to tear the leg like the 3rd time he wore them
I put them away in my "to fix"pile
Okay it took me 8 months but I finally got around to turning them into these
I then cut the legs down the the length I wanted the skirt to be
plus 1 1/2" for the turn back at the waist.
I joined the two legs together
Folded the top back a 1/4" then 1 1/4 to create the casing for a 1" elastic waistband.
I made two patch pockets from the remaining scraps
A cute new skirt for free
Gotta love that!
