so sew

So I'm not super good at sewing. I don't even like it, really. Too much math involved (exact measurements, rulers??...yikes). But there have been a few things I've sewn that I've actually been sorta kinda proud of. Like my hand-made hobo bag with appliqued vintage radio patch- aka the bag that was stolen. RIP.

This week I did a little sumthin sumthin. It did involve a sewing machine, a pen, and a few pins. It did not, however, involve any rulers of any kind. And that's the way, uh huh uh huh, I like it.

(I don't know why this picture ended up being so blown out-looking but it's kinda rad, dontcha think?)

You're probably wondering what it is I actually made in these pics. I'll tell you. 

First, you should know that I bought these tan corduroys for $4 at the local thrift store. Win. They used to have big, flared bottoms. Did you catch that?...used to. Now they're skinnies! Took just a few minutes and they're SO much more wearable. Double win. I've heard large bell bottoms are coming back in but whatever, these are cuter.
