Is there anyone else out there who loves to free-pile! It is one thing I'll miss about living in our current apartments. Everyone treats a laundry room bin as a free-pile for give and takes. I have found quite the steals there and enjoy using the stuff to cut up to make MORE things.
Here are some capris that I made from some old pants. Cute and perfect on-the-run summer wear. (*Thanks Jess for the awesome modeling!)
One of the best parts about free finds is that you stress less about them getting worn out. I love less stress.
This pair of pants had been hemmed up and worn in. I let down the hem and they did NOT look good.
I used a pair of capris that I really like and trimmed accordingly. I ended up having to taper the sides in a bit so they wouldn't look weird. Then it was simply a seam down the side and a hem around the bottom.
Go free pile!
