Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Too short pants refashion

Found these fabulous grey Banana Republic pants. But just an odd length.

Not really capris but not really a good length. I wanted to try and see if I could lengthen them. Feeling the bottom hem, I thought there might be enough fabric. 

Time to pull out the seam rippers! And then I went to town ripping away. Yup it was double folded. 

I ironed the heck out of the pants to even it out. 

It was already serged, I did a tiny hem, and stitched blind hem. 

Done! Longer. 

Now I don't feel so weird wearing them to work. :) So always check to see if you can lengthen things!

Wow!! That is awesome. I really need to start thinking about that when I shop.

Yes! Anything with a big cuff on the bottom tends to have a lot of excess fabric! :)
