All in black – trousers to skirt refashion

with 9 Comments

Linen trousers to black skirt refashion by Eddie's Room, roued.com

This was one of my first refashions – I just never got around to sharing it. I am forever trying to find clever ways of refashioning those linen trousers that I love to buy but which inevitably end up with holes everywhere. If you like the idea – which is quite simple – let me know and I might make it into a tutorial.

Also if you have some ideas for refashions of old linen/cotton trousers feel free to post them in the comments and I will add them to a future post about this sort of thing.

    WOW! EPIC SKIRT! We have a Christmas party coming up and I found this amazing refashion shirt idea but now I need a skirt. Could you post atutorial? I’d LOVE to do this!

  2. […] use a yoke (like what you did for the black linen pants convert) and make gores from the other jeans, providing they aren’t too heavy weight. I’ve made jeans […]

      Thank you Erica,
      I’m sure your first refashion wasn’t shameful though – you do such lovely stuff!
