I have officially emerged from my non-crafting funk!
Over the past month or so I have walked past these pants numerous times while shopping.
My initial reaction was that I loved them, this surprised me since I usually stay FAR away from bold patterns.
My second reaction was, "Honestly, who can pull off floral pants?"
I tried them on a couple times, once in front of Taylor. He laughed for a while and told me they were hideous. So I threw them back on the clearance rack and for good reason... do you see how wide those beasts made my hips look?! And can you say, mom butt??
Then, about a week ago, the price dropped drastically and I knew I had to have them.
I knew some sort of alteration was needed. If I was 100 lbs and had toothpicks for legs I might have tried to pull them off as pants, but since I have the birthing hips of a rhino I knew I needed to revamp the design.
Skirts are easy and they are a perfect way to dress up my work attire during the summer. I can never have enough!
I was surprised at how much material I had to take in. I ended up making the skirt slightly constricting around the knee area, next time I will add a a slit.
Don't think I am crazy, but I went and bought a second pair of these today!! I get so caught up in my projects. I know now that I have done it once I can do it about twenty times better the second time. Plus they were so cheap!
Any suggestions for round two??
