Making Stuff: New Slim Slacks for the Boy

by This is Carrie on December 6, 2010

A friend dropped off this old pair of men’s pants a while back and I knew they were destined to become a pair of Slim Slacks for Brother.

I loved the existing flap pockets on the original pant that I had to figure out a way to incorporate at least one flap on the new little pant.

Slim Slack Tutorial can be found HERE. If you’ve always been afraid of zipper flys and waistbands, this is the pant tutorial for you.

Well, I finished these (and a lot of other projects) before the baby was born. Just didn’t get a chance to blog about them yet. So don’t think I’m too amazing . :)
