Altered Lounge Pants


I have these comfy banana yellow lounge pants I got on super clearance from Talbot's.  They are great, but they did shrink a little in the dryer.  Plus, with the mud around here when it rains, I thought that shortening them to capri length would make them even more perfect.  I used the material cut off from the leg to add a reverse appliqued "K" to the left knee.  They have been washing great, and I love the results!


Applique after several washes.


I don't have any before pictures, but all I did was measure how much to cut off for them to end below the knee.  I left the edges raw since they are a cotton knit.  Obviously they will never be a fashion statement.  However, they are now more usable around the house than they were before, and I smile when I see the personalized "K", LOL!

Check out my tutorial on how I do reverse applique:  Reverse Applique Tutorial
