Welcome to my pants! :D
When I saw these sweet wide-legged Levi trousers at my favorite $1 thrift store, I thought they’d fit just fine. Unfortunately, they were a quite large. They’re women’s pants, but they’re huge in the crotch! The waist was big as well. :/
I used to think taking in pants was too hard for me, but this year is all about trying new challenges. I pinned the inseam of each leg through the crotch about 1″.
Then I carefully ran it through my machine.
I trimmed off the extra fabric with my pinking shears. But yet…the waist was still too big. :(
Not to worry! I sewed a dart down the middle seam.
After sewing down my dart, my trousers were ready for a fun day of erranding. While out and about, I put together a sweet care package for a good friend of mine who’s teaching in China for a year. I hope it all makes it through customs (It’s all pretty non-perishable)! :)
Later that evening, I met up with another good friend for a few glasses of wine. :)
I love my new high-waisted trousers! They lend such a classic 30’s look to any outfit! :)
