Yee-haw! It's time for another edition of taking something thrifty and sewing it in to something nifty.
Today's feature: a pair of lacy lounging casual pants (trousers to some!).
So I've never sewn pants for myself before, and was eager to try.
I had some of this beautiful turquoise linen cotton left over from my doily infinity scarf d.i.y... and also had this canvas coloured lace table-runner material.
I love how the 'star' lace detail dangles ornately around my ankles (though going down stairs in bare feet almost tangled/tripped me)!
Truth be told, the
plumber low-rise nature of these pants shows that I still need to work on my 'in-seams'... but I'm sure I can improve for the next attempt.
I'm still learning, one stitch at a time.
Hope you're inspired to upcycle your wardrobe too!
