As you may have figured out, I love experimenting with non-traditional fabric choices, and I love a good thrift store find.
I found these goddess-sized stretchy jeans at the thrift store for $1.50. They didn’t look like they’d ever been worn. I loved the yoga-style waistband. Well, I could use an extra pair of shorts, so home they came.
First I cut off the waistband and set it aside. Then I used my handy Christie Brinkley shorts pattern as a template. I had to fudge a bit here and there, but I made it work.
Finally, I cut down the yoga waistband to fit the new shorts and sewed it on.
I have enough fabric left over from the lower legs to make a skirt. Another day, though…right now it’s too hot to sew.
