My friend gave me an old pair or pinstripe pants she had and i turned them into shorts and a waist cincher (i'm not really sure that's the right name for it).

here are the pants:


and the shorts:

They're just cut offs and you can see the chalk where i marked the length i wanted them to be. I made them a little longer.

Here is the under bust corset waist cincher thing:
Front



Back


and then another picture just for kicks:


sorry the picture angles are so weird, i had to take the pictures myself.

I'd love to hear what you think!  Grin
