Halloween is only 11 days away and I have got to get moving on these costumes.
Yes, my family is going as the Mystery Inc. Gang from Scooby-Doo. Lil' Sis is going to be Daphne, since she loves purple.
I found a cute pair of purple capris at Target on clearance for $3. Cheap-O! Can't buy material for that price.
Then I was informed that Daphne doesn't wear pants. Duh, mom! She wears a dress. We compromised and I am going to make a skirt out of these capris.
Are you ready? Here we go.
First thing I did was rip out the seams on the inside of the legs.
Then, I laid them flat on the side so that I could cut a straight edge on the legs.
Here is what it looked like after I made the cuts.
Then, I removed a little bit of the inseam so that I could pin the legs together to form a skirt.
I stitched the seams up and put a small hem on the skirt.
I thought it needed just a little something extra. So I had some extra ric-rac left over and sewed it onto the hem of the skirt.
I think it looks pretty good. Only 3 bucks, about 30 minutes and I don't have to spend 40 dollars on a costume. Suh Weet!
Thanks for visiting my blog today. Have a great day!
