Ok, maybe some of you have already tried this, but I wanted to post it anyway.
I went to the thrift store in town a while ago and bought a pair of drawstring pants. They fit but there was a big dumb logo on the leg, but I decided to take it home anyway to see what I could do with it.
Anyway... some time later I was trying to find some free instructions on how to make pants without a real pattern, and I thought about those drawstring pants that I, of course, never did anything with.
So, here's what I did. I cut up the inseam on each leg and separated them. Then, I lay both pieces out and traced them onto some scrap fabric I had lying around. I cut the new pieces out and sewed up the inseam on each one and then sewed the pants together. I added a drawstring and voila! A new pair of pants. I'm an amateur sewer and it took me about 45 minutes.
Has anyone else done this?
If anyone wants more detailed instructions, feel free to ask. I don't have a digital camera but I can give some pretty darn good descriptions if need be.
