|First step was to cut off the legs at the funky tight seam.|
|Next step was to remove the crotch seam in order to make into a skirt.|
|Removing the fabric that formed the capri's "crotch".|
|Next, I opened up each leg at the inner seam. And placed each as the front and back of the new skirt. Notice that I left the extra fabric to fill in the V formed from removing the crotch seam of the capris in order to create the skirt.|
|The back needed some "patchwork-ing" in order to fill in all the areas.|
|The funky leg pocket from the capris is reused as a front pocket on the skirt. (This also covers over a weird area where the crotch seam and zipper didn't look quite right). And makes for a useful lipstick pocket! ...Ha!|
|Front view of finished new skirt.|
|Back side..... (sorry about that... Nobody should photograph a butt exactly.) 'But', here is the view of the finished skirt.|
|Side view shows how the old capris had a drawstring at each leg which was incorporated into each side of the skirt creating a tiny side walking "slit".|
So there you go!
A pretty quick, easy and fun project! I have since made several more of these.
You can do it too!
Or, if you are a local... I can remake your old capris into a fun summer skirt!
Come by any Wednesday to my "Off the Beach" Workshop & Studio!
