Recently give me these,,


2 problems tho,,

1- He is a rather large character, against petite me, so the pants are slightly balloonish on me,

2- I would like to make the pants into a skirt, posaiable a 'circle' skirt,
  - Hmm I'm not a huge fan of short tight skirts,,
  And from previous attempts of making skirts from jeans (aged 9) cutting from the crotch just doen't work,,

So any help would be grateful


Sorry if this is in the wrong place,,

You will not be able to make a circle skirt out of these but you may be able to make more of an A line skirt.  Try taking apart the inseam and the front and back curve on the center seam up to the point were it stops curving.  Decide how long you want it to be and add your hem depth and cut it off.  Then you can use the fabric you cut off to fill in the V shaped gap that forms where the legs were sewn together.  If you have enough fabric and want to make it a little fuller you could add a V shaped gusset to the side seams too.  Hope this helps.

It looks like you have enough length in the pants to make a short skirt out of wedge shapes -- essentially, triangles with the tops cut off.

Think, Mount Fuji -- but narrower.

The more wedges you can get, the fuller your skirt.
