I had these capris, from Old Navy, for seriously 3 years, never having worn them, for the day I felt bold enough to do something AWESOME. It didn't help that their lining sounded like wind pants.

Anyways, something AWESOME never struck, but the eve of my parent's anniversary party did, and I'm broke as a joke. So, I busted out the ugly pants, sliced, diced, stitched, and whipped together this:

Exhibit A: (Pardon the half cut up look, I was i a rush, and not willing to put on unflattering trousers.)

And the finished product (pardon the photo quality, if there's interest I'll take more, these are ripped from videos of the day)

And just because I would care to show him off,

The Mister, who was willing to run out and buy me a skirt if it meant I stopped yelling at the sewing machine at 3AM.

It's my first wearable alteration in about 3 years (talk about a slump), so I'm pretty pleased.

I think I've got those same pants! I think I wore them once, and they've been in a box for three years. But your skirt looks great, so maybe I'll pull them out and do some work of my own ...

I definitely suggest it, I mean, there has to be SOME reason we've been saving them for so long
