Stacy and Clinton told me NOT to do this.
But I did it anyway.
And I like it!
Stacy and Clinton have been telling me all these years with my wide hips that this narrow cut will make me look like………….
of all things………..
AN ICE CREAM CONE.
I beg to differ!
I love how this narrow cut shows off my shoes.
I love how this narrow cut creates a slimming illusion.
I think I might do this to all my pants (Sorry my English and Australian friends, I know that “pants” word makes you giggle).
Here’s a quick version of how I did this:
Start with some thrift store wide leg trousers.
Next put them on inside out and have someone pin the new seam line for you. In my case, the ruggedly handsome contractor husband pinned them for me.
Now, use the pin lines as a guide to draw a chalk line. Sew the new seam and trim.
Measure the new hem line and sew a small rolled hem.
Put on some cute shoes and you’re good to go.
Now Stacy and Clinton, do I look like an ice cream cone?
