PJ REFASHION: matching skirt and scarf

I found an old pair of Charlie's lounge pants in one of my refashion piles and didn't even question its location. Before my husband could change his mind, a Sharpie marker and a pair of scissors already did their damage to the pants.


I turned the top part of the pants into a cute little skirt, where I just needed to sew front and back seams and work on a new rolled hem. Because I wasn't sure how to stitch close the fly area, I will eventually remove the original button and add new ones.


I completed the infinity scarf even if it took a few extra minutes. And now I have a cute little lounge skirt that I can wear around the house and maybe the corner drugstore. My new infinity scarf is ready to go! Yay!

My husband has become very careful where he puts his clothing as well :)

Nice job! I've stitched shut the fly on a few pairs of lounge pants - just a line of stitching on the open side, leaving the buttons intact. It doesn't show too much if the thread is a good match. But if you work out a different way, please let us know.

I've got a few husband pieces in my pile and love what you did with this one!
