    Trouser Dress

    Take a lookie look at what I made from a pair of size 40 men’s trousers I bought for 50 cents! I cut the top part into a pearish shape and added an elastic waist.  Then I made an Obi belt out of the fabric from the legs to cover the ugly elasto-waistband…almost a completely No-Waste refashion! I wore a simple LBD under my new skirt, and voila!  The whole thing looks like a dress! Feeling adequately frocked, I met up with a couple of pals to see the 2010 Vista Queen Pageant at Trustus Theatre. Of course this was no ordinary beauty pageant…:) All of the queens were wonderful! …
