Refashioned: Double Felled Trousers

11 Comments

I love these pants. My father-in-law got them for me not long after I had Penelope. They’re high-ish waisted, so they’re perfect for flattering a mom body. I wore them quite a bit, until they shrunk.

My sister borrowed them while I was expecting Felix, and I think (not sure) that she may have put them in the dryer at some point, because they came back about an inch shorter. When it comes to a wide leg trouser, that makes a huge difference. I could no longer wear them with heels, and wearing them with flats made me feel like my legs looked stubby.

They were in desperate need of a makeover. They are nice jeans. Hello, Anthro. The problem with them is the fact that they’re double felled on the side seams. DOUBLE FELLED. there was no way I was going to unpick crazy felled seams to take them in.

So I made darts. I lined up the seams and laid out my favorite pair of jeans on top and marked out my darts. The refashion ended up taking 2 hours instead of 6. I’d say that was a win. They’re at about a cigarette width at this point, but I may have hemmed them too short for that, so I think I’m going to go back and make them more of a skinny jean.

Yay for a new pair of pants! I’ve been whining to Chris about how I only have 2 pairs of jeans that fit. Now it’s three.

I think if I actually¬†exercised¬†I could fit into my old jeans again, but I’m just too darn lazy for that.

Outfit Details:

  • top: handmade
  • pants: Anthropologie
  • shoes: c/o Blowfish

UPDATE: I couldn’t stand the cigarette pant with that length for long. I just skinnified them. AHHH, much better!

BRRR!

Penelope sure loves the DownEast catalog! She’s been “reading” it all afternoon.

I’ve been getting huge smiles from Felix all day. Except for when I put him in front of the camera. WAAA!
