I undid the waistband. Then I got rid of the J shape in the front and back of the old legs. Sew straight down.
I sewed the waist band back after I took the skirt in. What happens now is it did make the pockets come closer together. I'm fine with that. Then cut and sew and the bottom hem. I got a nice pencil skirt for work. Yay!
Yes and I can pair belts with the skirt too and make it fun.
Here is the recap. Such an improvement from those capris. Sorry Ann Taylor, but your capris were ugly!
