Hello Readers. Today's project is a pair of gray corduroy pants. I have wanted skinny gray pants for quite a while. I tried to make a pair last October. It was a huge fail. I found these gray cords at a clothes swap and took them because I liked the color so much. If you notice in the picture, they match my boots exactly. I thought this would make me look taller. I'm not sure it worked.
They were in such great shape, I knew I could make something of them. But they were so big and long on me.
Really big. Really long.
I took off some extra from the sides and the length. I just stitched a new seam .on the outer edge of each leg, right along the seam that was already there. I used it as a guide while I sewed and I made each leg more narrow as I sewed down to the ankle.
I was happy with the fit and the color. They have a lot of stretch and they have a high waist which I love. My baby is almost a year old and unlike some Hollywood actresses, I have not shrunk down to a size 1 yet. (How do they even do that? It's like a super power. Superman can fly, they can lose all their baby weight in 2 weeks. Ugh!) Anyway....
I was so excited about the long strips of fabric I had left over. I thought I knew exactly what I was going to do with them. Check back tomorrow to see how that turned out.
Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
