A Pantsformation - or... How I Made a Skirt from a Pair of Pants
By MysticMandy on June 11, 2012
There is a lot to love about upcycling. First there is the obvious recycling benefit, which is also nice when you are working with a budget. Second is the creative aspect; it really is more exciting for me to figure out how to re-arrange my existing clothes than it is to buy a pattern and cut along the lines. The third, and perhaps most compelling reason, is that it usually takes a lot less work.
There, I said it. I love love love to sew. But it is really really cool when I don't have to sew in a zipper or finish every little last edge.
After my last upcycle, my closet was down one skirt. So... I rummaged through an old clothes bin to see what I could find that might want to be my newest skirt. And then I saw it, a pair of stretch cotton-blend trousers that are way too big for me.
