I love Sister time! I love that my sister still wants to do sleepovers. She is usually the one to come over and spend the night with me since I have kids, but I hang with her at her house whenever the ole' ball and chain is willing to watch the kids and let us women have Girl Time. Hey, us women are allowed to say Ole' Ball and Chain too right? Back me up ladies!
These were some jeans that had been cut off into Capri's. I offered to hem them for my sister but she saw some Capri's with lace and had to have them.
Similar Capri's have sold for $50 at Macy's, and while ours might not be as cute, they come pretty darn close!
You will need:
A pair of Capri's
Sewing Machine (optional, can be sewn by hand)
Step 1: If your pants are cut offs then fold them and fold again to the desired cuff length. I actually folded it up and sewed it and then folded it up again, it's just an easier way for me to sew it, however I ended up with two hem lines, but you can't see it under the lace, so whatever you prefer.
Step 2: Pin your Lace onto your Capri's. We used this lovely slightly off white/cream vintage look lace. We got it at Walmart for only $3.97 and it's 3 yards.
Step 4: Sew it by hand or use a sewing machine. Sew as close to the end of the cuff/lace as possible.
Step 5: To make sure the lace stayed in place I then sewed the sides together where the lace should meet, and cut off the excess lace. I then sewed the other side to anchor it down further.
Step 6: With a lighter, I very carefully heated the edges of the lace to keep it from fraying during the wash.
Whaa-la you have your lace cuff Capri's.
I even used a white thread, as I didn't have off white/cream colored thread, but honestly you can hardly even see the where its sewed onto the cuff.
I think they turned out great! She certainly loves them! I think its a great salvage to a pair frayed cut off Calvin Klein. Calvin don't have nuttin on our design, lol.
We had plenty left over to do a belt maybe? Maybe I could make a flower too to attach to the belt or around the pocket area and add some of the lace into the flower? Yes, I think it would look even cuter with some more accessories.
Hope I explained it well enough. Thanks for Tuning in Guys!
