DIY: Skinny Pants

I found a tutorial on crafting your own skinny pants from flared pants on What the Craft (via this say YES! to Hoboken post from December). The tutorial can be found here. It's pretty basic sewing (so, it's right up my alley). In fact, I even tried this one out:

These stretch cords were about to become my next contribution to the DI, because they had fallen out of my wardrobe rotation. I thought it was a shame to give them up (they are so comfortable, I could sleep in them). When I remembered this idea, I thought I would give it a whirl.

Anyway, if you have a pair of pants that you might want to keep but you dont like the fit on the legs, this is an easy fix. It's like a new pair of pants for free, and what is a better deal than free?

If any of you complete this project, drop me a line with your pictures at uberchicforcheap (at) gmail (dot) com.

Thanks for reading and as always,

Happy Shopping!


  1. I have some pants that might be perfect for this!

  2. That's great! Also, this can be used to turn flares into bootlegs if you aren't down with your pants being skinny.

  3. Well, I knew YOU would be down, but not everyone has the spirit to experiment in their wardrobe like Aaron. hahahaha
