My husband and I have seemed to get a little more... fluffy the past couple of years. This equals lots of really ill fitting jeans. Some we hold on to in hopes of dropping the fluff, others have seen their day anyhow and are fair game for me to cut up. As I was getting ideas for the burlesque swap, I was going to make a prototype garter belt out of one of the pant legs. Then I thought, well hell, the hard part is already done for me on here!  All I had to do was cut it into the correct shape and trim it up with some bias tape. Easy peasy. All original pockets are still fully functional as well as the fly (for um... easy access?) The back left pocket has a skully applique and the back laces up corset style with black satin ribbon. The bottom comes to 4 points that dangle 4 elastic strips to attach the belt to stockings with snaps. Also, its really trashy. I don't know whats come over me lately with the  trashy stuff I've been making.
