As I’ve been moving my craft room upstairs, I’m coming across all sorts of little projects that had been cast aside or just on my “to-do later” list. In this particular case, I have an entire shelf dedicated to projects that just need a quick fix. So… I’ve been doing all sorts of boring stuff, taking in/letting out waistbands, hemming, fixing buttons, patching holes…. Most of them too boring to blog about.
One of the quick fix project were these knit pants from target, they were always a favorite and had held up well. (I’m guessing they are about 4 yrs old.) Look familiar to any other moms out there?
The colors are just so bright and pretty she wanted to keep wearing them. Unfortunately the pants were a boot cut/bell bottom style, so as she grew taller, the style didn’t work. (She can wear her skinny leggings for a couple years as capris…)
I got to work turning these into skinny leggings… All I did to fix the pants was to line up a pair of leggings that fit on top of the old pants along the outer edge. I marked the new inner seam line and basted along that line.
I had her try the pants on and after I was sure they were not to tight, I serged the seam. (I could probably tighten them up a bit more, but I’m satisfied for now…)
