Project ReStyle: An old skirt into cute kiddy pants

This is a project I’ve been planning for a-g-e-s!

I kept this old bias cut skirt because I liked the soft fabric. The elastic waistband died ages ago and I never bothered to repair it because Alisi’s Daddy didn’t really like it.

So this weekend I turned it into a pair of pants for Alisi.

I used the Oliver + S Sailboat Pants pattern.

To continue the recycling theme I used some odd buttons I had for the front fastening. I think the mismatch looks kinda cute!

Here’s a bigger pic of the cute new pants.

And here’s a gratuitous pic of my photographic assistant “helping” during the “before” photo shoot. She thought I’d laid it on the floor as a special crawling mat just for her.
