Upcycle pants!!

There's something about gingham that just draws me in. I love it. Shirts, pants, table cloths, cute dresses......everything looks nice in gingham!

So when Pips old shirt became to big for him, I just couldn't throw it out. I decided I'd have a go at upcycling it into something for Miss Rouge.

Pants!! Perfect!

Step 1 - I simply cut off the shirt arms.

I love that they will already have a cuff at the ankle!

Step 2 - stitch pant legs (shirt arms) together..... right sides together and turn over top enough to thread elastic through.


She's happy, I'm happy and the environments happy!

Have you upcycled anything cute lately?


  1. ok this might be one of my first sewing projects. what a great idea!
