Upcycle Floral pants

I found these floral pants at my local thrift store.  They were a little to big for me but I loved the pattern.  The pants cost me just $2 and about an hour of my day.

I used a pair of pants that I wear as my pattern and added extra for seam allowance.

The pants had a side zipper and a small section of elastic on each side of the waistband.  I liked the elastic so I moved my pattern over so I could keep that part as well as the pockets that were there too.  This made it so I didn’t have to sew a zipper on.

The pants didn’t have belt loops so I made some using some leftover fabric.  I made the belt loops about 1″ x 3″.  And I fold them under about 1/2″ to sew them to the pants leaving the belt loops about 1/2″x 2″.
