Men’s Grey Wranglers to Wide Leg Cropped Trousers.

#68 Back to School Wardrobe
REFLECTIONS: Spring in Texas is warming up with afternoons into the 80’s
  • Later, when we hit 100's, we need summer weight Capris
  • Now Cropped Trousers in transition weight are useful.
BEFORE: Men’s grey denim western cut pants. With Sans a belt waist!!!.
  • From husbands closet clean out.
  • Seam rip: Waistband, zipper, belt loops.
  • Shorten hem.
  • Open side seams & insert gusset made from self fabric waistband.
  • Attach new elastic casing waistband cut from old t-shirt.
AFTER: Spring transition weight Wide Leg Cropped Trousers.
  •  Heavier weight & longer than summer crops. 
  • Side gusset appears to be a design detail when worn. 
  • Waist band is covered by over the waist tops.

I steal from my husband too! Great job, that waistband looks so well done. The length is great too.

Chickie walsh Thanks. I took a guess on the length. As always I can shorten and hem again if I need to. I plan to wear to family afternoon dinner tomorrow to try them out.
