Skinny Capri

I received this J Crew catalog in the mail this past week


And I fell in love with these immediately

The Cafe Capri

So I thought I would try it out. I had bought these old navy pants at a thrift store a long time ago and was just waiting for something to transform them. And the Cafe Capri was the perfect project.
This is what they looked like before.
Sorry for the pictures, I have to figure out where and how to take pictures at our new house and without Clint. Since he is now deployed to Afghanistan, he won't be much help to me.

Here is the after.
I like the way they turned out and for $3.00 It makes me super happy to wear them.

If you can sew a straight line you can easily do this projects.
I just grabbed a pair of my pants that I wanted the Capri's to fit like and I turned them both inside out.
then I just traced a line down the grey pants where I should stitch the seam
then I tried them on and once they fit how I wanted them I cut the extra fabric off.
And there you have it.
Super fast and easy.

  4. Great job at transforming those into capris! They look great! So glad I found your blog I am your newest follower via GFC. I am an Army wife too, living in Chesapeake VA! Keep your chin up during your hubby's deployment, it can be tough....My husband has been deployed to Afghanistan twice. Its not easy for you and your family, but the pride you have in him and being a military family will help you get thru the lonely and often long days till he gets back home. Heather :)
