Transformations

I think that is what I'm going to call my refashions from here on out- it just makes me feel that much cooler....

Anyway, I got some old dress pants from my mom and I have really been wanting a pencil skirt. The pants were INCREDIBLY comfortable, so I thought they would work great! I googled some images to find a skirt I liked the shape of for some inspiration. Here's what I found:
Cute right? I thought so. So here are the terrible quality before pics:
EXTREMELY flattering pants, no?... yeah, No. Love that the mirrors in my gym are the only tall mirrors I have and Ben is never home to take a pic when I need him! I'm still training Brook, as you'll see below :)

Anyway, here's the terrible quality after pictures!
And Brook's attempt:
Right now my compy doesn't like my photo editing software, so you get what I get. Anyway, I'm really happy with it! SO comfortable and I think I will definitely get some wear out of it. I didn't get a photo of the back- I did a short little slit in the back seam so I could actually walk in it. It also has one back pocket. I'm really excited with the possibilities this project has opened me to! And if you've wanted to try "transforming" but you're nervous to ruin good clothes, just find some free ones like I did and take the plunge!
