Upside down, pants become a blouse

Hello you, wonderful refashionistas,

I am so glad to be part of this talented and full of ideas group of people. Like you, I find fast fashion really deploring and try by all means to stop the renewal-throwing cycle by being more selective and carreful when purchasing. 

From far as I remember, I've always been attracted to fabrics and clothing and often I did not find in stores what I was looking for. So I started to sew and create my own outfits by reading sewing and pattern-making books, and blogs...I've started my own blog, In the mood for Couture, in order to share my tips and to showcase my projects. 

I live in Paris so my English might have an exotic taste. Please excuse my language errors, I do keep improving myself whenever I have the opportunity.

For the first post on this blog, I would like to share with you a jean transformation I operated recently. 

Here is the starting point:



And here is the result:






You can find more information on the intermediary steps on my article

I was having so much fun with this transformation that I decided to explore all the possibilities that a jean can offer. I've already cutted a second pair of pants that I will show you very soon.

Till then, keep calm and save your dressing

Cristi

Pipped at the post! I'm doing an upside-down trouser refash at the moment and you beat me to posting! Yours looks fantastic, can't wait to see what else you come up with!

Just had to mention. Showed my 17yo cousin and 11yo neice and now I have 2 to make for Christmas. Hope I can do you justice. Even my 9yo son thought it was cool. I have to lose weight so I can have one.
