Shauna from Shwin&Shwin and I am thrilled to guest post today! I had the honor to participate in the last round of project run and play and it was so much fun! What a joy to return with out the stress Ha! This week is all about refashioning and I love refashions! Fabric is fabric and often its a lot of fun to challenge yourself to make something out of something other than purchased yardage. The thing to remember about refashioning is you don't have to just refashion something old, and used. One of my favorite places to look is the clearance rack at stores. Sometimes you will hit the gold mine.
you can draft one too...directions here) I made the pieces wider, for two reasons. 1. I wanted a wider leg and 2. I wanted to add some darts to the front to add shape. So cut out the front and back pieces. When refashioning pants I always use the original hem.
need help with darts?) When I was making my darts I made sure that the width was half the waist measurement.
like I did here and I added them to the waistline. I also added some beads.
