Pants to Skirt Advice

Remember the pants I was thinking about making into a pencil skirt that I talked about before? I had some requests for pictures, so here they are:

This is my "I lost a gazillion pounds!" look.

Here's that elastic waistband. There is a zipper in there, too.

So, keep the elastic? Create a whole new waistband? Thoughts?

P.S. Don't worry about the "bra band floob" going on in the last picture. I was trying my bra on a tighter setting because I could, but once I saw these pictures I quickly loosened it. I asked The Hubby why he didn't noticed, he said he didn't know. You gotta love the men that don't see your flaws.


  1. dude, your "floob" is no where near as bad as mine lol. unfortunately, i can't let my bra out anymore than it already is :( I'm hoping though i'll loose some weight after baby and then they will fit better...

    But then i'm going to need to wear a nursing bra so i guess it doesn't matter LOL.

    And i don't have much advice, but i don't like the elastic...i'd say make a waistband...the elastic makes it old? I don't know LOL

  2. I agree with Jilline, I don't like the elastic either. I am not sure why, but I just do not. Sorry if that is bad. :-)

  3. No, thanks for your opinions I think I'll make a whole new waistband.

  4. I agree. I think with a pencil skirt a tailored waistband is better. It's about time you lost all of that weight! Just kidding.

  5. Oh, Mom, I'm still working on my pregnancy weight. By "working on" I mean eating tons of food. Whew, nursing (literally) takes a lot out of ya!
