Hi everyone! I've got another refashion up for you! This used to be a pair of capri pants that I found. But lately it has been way too hot for this kind of clothing, so I decided to cut them into shorts, and I turned the leftover fabric into a halter top. Now I can stay a little cooler while lounging around the house Smiley

Before picture and other refashions can be found on my blog!

Wow, that is really cute!
I never would've thought of anything like that...ever.
Did you use a pattern or what?

Thanks Smiley I just cut a straight line across the leg for the shorts, then cut off the seams and cuff from the legs. This left me with 2 rectangles which fit perfectly around my belly, and the other 2 pieces I shaped into 2 long trapezoid-like shapes for the bust. I made a quick sketch of what I did.. hope that helps!
