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!

My fly's undone.

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.

All of the queens were wonderful!  We had such fun being serenaded, heckled, and ultimately verrrrry entertained by all of them, but my vote went to…(drum roll please)…

  1. Please give some guidelines for the obi belt. Thick part waist length but how long for the ties? 2x,3x, ??

    • I wonder what’s up…I checked two computers and they’re loading up fine. You might need to delete your cookies or update your flash…that always seems to work for me when I have that problem. 🙂

      • yay its working now! it was weird, it wouldn’t work for me all day yesterday. computers can be so lame. glad i didn’t have to miss your awesome refashions!

    • I actually do if I want to take normal human-sized strides. 🙂 Otherwise, I’d be mincing around like Morticia Addams! Glad you like! I think I’ll have to make some more!
