If you follow me on IG you will have noticed that my style is fairly classic. I do occasionally like to try new trends, but I always go back to the classics.
The joggers trend for example. I like the look on other people, but wasn't sure about it for me. Plus if I wanted a pair which was long enough I'd have to buy them online and I wanted to try them on first. Oh the drama!
So I took a pair of wide leg pants that I wasn't that fussed on and refashioned them.

Here's how I did it:
1. Try pants on inside out & pin inside seam to desired width. I started just above my knee and worked my way down.
*Important tip* - make sure you leave the ankle opening wide enough to get your foot out! I may or may not have (totally did) pinned myself into my pants then couldn't get them off.
2. Sew along line of pins & try them on again to ensure you're happy before cutting off the excess fabric. Finish seams.
3. I added cuffs to the bottom of my pants rather than just making a casing to tread elastic at the bottom. This gave me some extra length. The cuffs I used were knit fabric.
Ta da! An easy refashion from old wide leg pants to joggers.

I've already worn these pants more in their new life as joggers than I ever did when they were wide legged.
Have you embraced the joggers trend?
