THE TROUSER REFASHION SWAP

9.26.2012



 

I was pretty excited to be included with all of these talented bloggers in the first ever trouser refashion swap.  I made a refashion for the ever so amazing Carrie of This Mama Makes Stuff.

Here is a list of all of the ladies involved:

Miriam of MadMim
Miranda of One Little Minute
Melissa of I Still Love You
Krista of Lazy Saturdays
Kelli of True Bias
Kate of See Kate Sew
Jennifer of Grainline Studio

I started off with these amazing neon yellow/green silk pants from the thrift store.  Ever since I became pregnant I have been so mad that I never jumped on the peplum thrend before I didn't have a waistline anymore to accentuate.  So I thought this was the perfect excuse to make some peplum fun for someone else.

Here is what I started with:



Here are a few pics of the process.  It was a real trial and error type of thing which mostly consisted of draping on my dressform and using every single bit of fabric that I had.







And here is the final project:




I can't wait to see Carrie wear it - look for it on her blog Monday.
