pegged pants

 

There is a new version of this tutorial HERE.

 


it seems like everywhere i go, i hear people asking how to make skinny fit pants. so here's how.

grab a pair of pants that would be perfect if it weren't for those stupid flared legs. they should fit your waist and hips relatively well.

 

put them on inside out.

from the knee down (you can go higher if there's extra room in the thigh area), pin close to your leg, so they fit as tight as you want.

 

<--- like so.

 

 

now take the pants off and sew where you've pinned. try to match up your stitches with the stitches already on the pants so you don't get funky looking folds on the outside of your pants. you can trim off the extra fabric from the flare now, too.

feeling a little lost? check out the sewing basics or post a question in the forum.

turn them right-side out and voila!

you can shorten them into capris or add random zippers or bondage straps. whatever you want!
