Black Pants 3.0

Hello Refashion Co-op. It's Chickie here. I had 3 pairs of black pants in my refashion pile and this is the third and last pair. 

I decided to make a skirt and changed the buttons as well. The buttons are a fun and unique kind of waist closure. I really liked it and wanted to emphasize it.

I also liked this sweater with the skirt. The white buttons compliment the circles in the top. I shortened the arms and narrowed the body.

I love that it doesn't need any ironing. Does anyone like to iron? I dread it and I am terrible at it. I avoid it if I can.

For more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
Happy sewing to you.
