Remember this pair of pants?
Embroidered by me, worn by me quite a few times about ten years ago. Not at all in style or my style anymore, but I couldn’t bear to get rid of them. So finally – they’re a skirt!
I cut both legs off, cut them in half vertically, squared them up, then sewed them together to form a skirt with an elasticised casing waist.
So much better on Clare than on me! And the left over “shorts” have now become running shorts for my husband (since they’re not worn for very long and he’s not too embarassed to wear bright turquoise shorts in public – what a tolerant man)!
