Do you have a pair of pants that just plain looks good on your "hind end", but are too long, too flared, or full of holes? Here's a solution :).
Making a skirt out of pants is so easy, and works for ANY size.
If you want to repurpose some of the old pants in your home, here are the simple steps:
Measure at least 2 inches longer than the desired length... to hem, and just to be safe.
Make sure to keep the part that's cut off!! You'll need it later.
This part takes the longest. Watch an episode of your favorite tv show while you do this.
Do this for both the front and back.
Now for the sewing:
Of course, repeat these steps for both the front and back.
Trim off excess length. As seen in the picture above, there is an interesting line in the middle. I had to keep that on to make sure the skirt was long enough, but trimmed most of it off at this part.
Hem: fold under 1/4 inch and iron. Then fold under 1/2 inch. Sew as close to the edge all the way around. ** Note: depending on how the pants are made, you may have to adjust this part to whatever works!
Trim off the extra fabric on the inside of skirt.
Press and you're done!
