Uncuffing My Joggers

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I like joggers but these denim jean joggers were a little too tight at the ankles. My ankles were being strangled. I decided to remove the cuffs so the jeans would be more comfortable. 

Before and after.

I removed all these stitches so I could take the elastic out and give these jeans a standard hem. 

I did not realize that the cuffs were actually separate pieces. That's OK. I didn't really need them.

I hemmed the pant legs of the jeans and I liked them so much more. They were more comfortable and easier to wear. Thanks for reading along, for more details and pictures go to I Can Work With That.

Linen Scrap Skirt

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I really liked the linen of these pants so I made shorts by cutting off the legs. The legs were so long and wide that I thought I could make something out of that fabric too.

Before and after.

Cutting them off and making shorts was easy. 

I cut the pant legs open and that gave me 4 linen pieces to work with. 

I connected all the panels and added this wide ribbon between each linen piece. I liked the ribbon and it added some extra room to the skirt. 

I added an elastic waistband and hemmed the skirt as well. This was a fun project that used every inch of those linen pants. Let's hear it for zero waste sewing! Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

Tablecloth to Skirt

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I wanted to make a circle skirt from this round tablecloth. It was so easy and fast. 

Before and after.

I cut a circle in the center of the tablecloth. I tried to make this hole in the exact center so that the skirt would be even all around.

I made an elastic waistband and attached it to the skirt. 

This only took about half an hour to finish. Go get a tablecloth! You're going to love this. For more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
