It is the weekend! How nice to have a full Saturday ahead to do whatever non-school-related stuff I want to. :)
I finally took pictures of the polka dot black pants I made a few weeks ago to make a tutorial. My inspiration were these Anthropologie pants. Aren't they gorgeous? This tutorial is one of the easiest and most fun sewing projects I have done. Plus, the results look amazing! Here is the before and after picture, again. I bought a pair of plain black Dickies brand pants at Goodwill for $3. They fit really well throughout the waist and hips, but they were too flared for my style.
Since I didn't take pictures when I made my pants, I demonstrated on a different pair. The first thing I did was flip the pants inside out and sew them down into a skinny pant. Here's a wonderful tutorial on a blog for converting regular pants into skinny pants. After I sewed them as tight as I needed them, I tried them on and marked how long I wanted the pants to be.
Pants--Goodwill $3 + $1 paint = $4
Tank top--H&M in Spain = $5
Heels--Thriftshop = $6
