What says more about Spring/Summer than a pair of white pants/trousers? A pair of White Brocade Pants! Brocade as casual day wear has been in style for a couple of years now. I bought these too big RTW White Brocade pants at the clearance rack with the store gift card my friend gave me at x'mas. It was a couple of size too wide but they were only $5.99!
Then I wore them inside out and used the usual PPCS (pin-pinch-cut-sew) method with these pants.
Lastly I opened the side seam on the waistband and inserted an elastic into the back waistband. My weight can fluctuate 4 or 5 lbs during the course of a month (PMS time) and my waistline expands with it too. So an elastic back waistband is always a safe thing to do for me for these non-stretch fabrics.
So here is the final result:
It's not a big refashion but I'm happy with how they turned out. I hope I don't get them dirty the first day I wear them out!
