The Last Little Bit of Summer {Refashion}

Here’s a final summer refashion as the weather has been cooler and the days have become shorter.

… speaking of shorter. I’ve had two old pairs of pants sitting in the refashion basket for awhile.

Both pairs were at least a touch too long and had the backs walked off of them to a point that they were frayed.

The blue pants were snug fitting through the hips to the knees, then came out in a wide flare at the bottom. These I decided should be capris.

Have you noticed that it’s hard to find capri pants any more? I have, so these fit the bill pretty well.

The brown ones fit great in the hips and thighs, and were loose at the knees and quite wide at the ankles.

The brown ones were going to become shorts.

With each pair of pants, I measured them against an item that fit well.

I marked them and sewed down the edges.


And ta da!


I love to get creative and turn one piece into something completely new, like turning a man’s shirt into a dress. But sometimes you just need to make a few adjustments to turn a useless, out of style item into something you actually need.

Now that it seems we’re done with the warmer temperatures, it’s onto some autumn refashions.
