sorry, i have no before pictures of anything!  Sad
basically these were very high-waisted work pants, i think some kind of dickie's knock-off, but good sturdy material- i cut off the top of the waist and the bottom cuffs years ago and wore them as sort of crappy capris for doing dirty work in- the top frayed and they got covered in paint and patches and silkscreens (the no-anchor screen is purely coincidental). so the finished product is also covered in paint, etc.
i'd been wanting to make sailor pants but couldn't figure out how it worked and didn't have enough fabric to make whole new pants. so i just happened to find the left-over fabric from one of the legs from these pants in my scrap box, and decided to use it to make them proper finished pants. i just sort of figured it out- i can maybe post a tutorial if y'all are interested.
ok, enough blather, here they are:

i had a snap instead of the hook and eye closure before, which was invisible, but it kept snapping open when i sat down- i might move the hook back a bit so you can't see it.

the back:

They look great.  I really like the corset section and the sailor buttons.
