Mrs. Cheap Pants

I kind of love to shop clearance racks.  I have been on a bit of a hot streak when it comes to cruisin' clearances.  Tank tops for $2.  Sweaters for $3.50.  But not all of these finds are great when you first see them.  Case and point, these pants:


They are HUGE!  But then I saw this:

However, they were BIG on and this is a post on taking them in, so I feel ok about it.}


I figured for $2, I could try to make these parachute pants a little more stylish.  And if I messed them up beyond repair (which was likely), I would only be out $2.

Last night I put my sewing skills to use and here's how they turned out:

{I only include my lower legs because I have tree trunks for thighs}

I already wore them today, so I think I got my money's worth.  And a coworker complimented me on them.  This goes in the success column (cause I keep score sometimes).
