#5 September Back to School: Men's Linen Pants

This is #5 for September Back to School.*I am a "retire / rehire". 
  • Retired from University and Rehired into an Elementary School
  • I pledge not to buy any new RTW or thrifted for my new "Back to School" wardrobe. 
  • I pledge to shop from my closet.

  • ·         Lined linen high quality men's pants from the Refashion stash.
  • ·         Old green sweater and t-shirt from the closet.

  • ·         Worn crochet covered buttons were replaced with mother of pearl buttons..
  • ·         Removed zipper, waistband and interfacing, and belt-loops from pants.
  • ·         Back pockets were trimmed to remove bulk.
  • ·         Resized pants by taking in on side seams. This moved back pockets off-center. This was             covered by the untucked shirts
  • ·         Waistband was replaced and elastic inserted.
  • ·         The new pull on, elastic waist, lined linen pants are versitle.
  • ·         The sweater is a bit "outdated." I am considering black dye & lace ruffle on the hem.

 AFTER: This Refashion is more about possibilities than style. Mens pants are full of potential for Refashion. And often made of good fabrics.
