These used to be my favorite jeans. We called them my “pouffy pants” because the bottoms of the pant legs were about 3 times wider than normal pant legs. They were incredibly comfortable, modest, and flattering.
But there was a problem. I never knew what shoes to wear with them. Without shoes, they were just the right length to touch the floor without tripping. With shoes, however, they were just a bit too short for the effect to work. So I was only wearing them around the house.
One day, though, I decided I needed to get more use out of them because they are just too cute. I’m in love with the waistband and pockets.
Sewed them together and what resulted? An awesome pouffy pants skirt! 😀 I paid special attention to the point at which the red started because I’ve seen a lot of pants-turned-skirts that are just not flattering because of point at which its all sewn together.
