I have done the skirt to piyama bottoms, and I was dying to try this other recon: trousers to skirt.
I had an OASIS wide leg trousers that I bought in the charity shop because they fitted nicely, but I've never worn them. I knew I will wear a skirt made of that fabric so scissors were out. I chopped of the length, then attacked the crotch. The legs were wide enough to let me sew a straight line on both sides. I didn't need to add a triangle of fabric that I have seen on the Jeans to skirt conversions. No need to do that here. I like the results, I will be wearing it tomorrow.

I didn't remember to take a proper photo of the trousers at the start of the process but I hope you can get the idea.

Thanks for watching!

Very nice!!! Looks like a nice work skirt and am very impressed that you did not need to add the extra triangle. I've needed to add that on all my jeans to skirt recons.
