FO x 2: Chambray Tee & Refashioned Golf Trousers

Where I live we have quite a well off retired population. The kind that indulge in expensive hobbies like sailing and golf. As a result the charity shops here will often throw up golfing or sailing related wear. These trousers were a case in point. (£1 rail! Score!) I loved the tartan/plaid pattern and subtle colour way; but not the frumpy leg shape. so I tapered and skinnified them and teamed them with yet another kimono tee incarnation. This time with a boxy shell top vibe and the addition of a dinky patch pocket…

More ammo for MMM’13!

    LOVE those trousers, certainly going to have to have a go at the trouser modification. All I need to do now is find me some retired kecks!

    These are gorgeous! I love them. I really need to learn to charity shop as you do – looking at the fabtrics and beyond the shapes. And how I wish Edinburgh charity shops had a £1 rail… 🙂
