Coat (Jumble Sale), Blouse (Ebay), Shoes and reworked shorts (Charity shop), Gloves (Car Boot Sale)
Needing to look business-like to visit my accountant this morning I quickly knocked up these city shorts from a pair of vintage dress pants I'd snaffled from the 50p rail at my favourite charity shop.
Fancy making a pair?
- Get down to your local thrift shop and sift through the rails for a pair of men's slacks that fit you well.
- Stand in front of a mirror and decide how long you'd like the finished shorts to be, add an extra three and a half inches and chop off the legs.
- Iron under a 2inch hem and then fold 1.5inches of the hem back on itself (wrong side to right side), pin and hand stitch into place.
Voila! City shorts in less time than it takes to watch a re-run of Sex And The City.
