So I had these burgandy  cords that were wayyy too small.




So I cut the legs off, sliced them up and sewed them into the side seam of the pants.
2 DVDs later I had this wicked skirt.



The finished product being worn:

Very nice, looks great on you. Cheesy I've found a new love for cords and this is a new idea for me. I've been making purses out of them but maybe I'll make some skirts.

Totally awesome, I like the skirt better than the original pants!

Oh! If I could make sense of it all. I wish that I could sing, I'd stay in a melody. I would float along in my everlasting song. What would I do to believe...

Thanks guys! I love it and it is very warm and comfy. It's hard to find clothes that fit me well since I'm not built like store bought clothes are- I am wider across the belly button than at the hips and my 'waist' is up at the bottom of my ribcage. No complaints though, my funny little body is healthy and it does encourage me to sew properly fitting clothes.

OMG!  I loved the original pants!   Cry  (No I am not trying to make you feel bad...I'm a flare/bellbottom freak).  But, the skirt came out fantastically, so it was definitely worth it Wink  Were those older pants?  The huge flare trend passed a few years ago (damn it!)...  Anway...the skirt is beautiful!  I love the color!
