1  Cuffed Pedal-pushers in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Becca Kae on: August 01, 2007 10:06:55 AM
The first time I'd ever heard of any sort of cropped pants (several years ago), I was told they were called pedal-pushers. And when I found out that they were actually called capris, I was a bit disappointed. I liked calling them peddle-pushers. So these are my pedal-pushers.

Whenever I shopped for jeans, I always had to go to particular stores in town to get any that were long enough (that is, unless I wanted to look like I was expecting a flood). And with this thing I've been doing (only buying used clothing), I had little hope of ever finding any that fit (and I haven't, yet). But! I got an idea of a way to utilize those jeans that, had I been 3 inches shorter, would have fit perfectly!



Very easy to do, and I simply love how these came out!
I cut off the leg about 4 inches below the knee, made the cuff, and then stitched, from the inside, along the top of the cuff to keep it in place.
