Ever since I saw Isabel's pantaloons at Farm Chicks, I wanted some too. Then last summer when Linda was visiting, she had some cute ones too. I definitely had pantaloon envy and have been looking for some to call my own. I think they are just too adorable poking out from under a skirt or dress.
I decided if I was going to own some pantaloons, that I would probably have to make some for myself so that's what I did.
First, I found a pair of cute linen crop pants at Value Village a few weeks ago for $4.99. I thought I would just add some rows of lace or ruffles to the bottom. I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with them so they just sat there while I did other stuff (like watch netflix movies on my computer.)
Yesterday I was in my very messy sewing room and I picked up a Shabby Chic curtain panel off the floor and spied the ruffles running along one side. (Insert lightbulb moment here!) I had bought that panel at a thrift store awhile back not really knowing what to do with it, but hello, it had ruffles, it was white, it had swiss dots and it was cheap. Enough said.
I decided that I would just cut off the ruffled part and sew it on the bottom of my pants and voila!
Instant adorable and super duper easy! I think I will just have to wear these to a Christmas Potluck I am going to tonight. What fun! I even have enough of the ruffles left to put on a cute apron so that will be another project to work on later.
