DIY Skinny Trousers

This refashion takes less than half a hour!!

Start by laying out the pair of trousers to be altered, inside out. Lay the skinny pair on top, aligning the crotch and waistband carefully.

Align trousers

Ensure the inside seams are perfectly aligned. Mark down the outside seam on the larger pair, where the skinny pair end.

Use this first leg as a template for the second leg – it is vital to remember that this second leg the taylor chalk marks the seam allowance and not the stitch marks.
