DIY Michael Kors colorblock pants

Royal Blue & Black is the hottest combo of the fall.

You don't have to go broke to get a pair of trendy trousers: BOOHOO has a huge selection of affordable clothing that can be easily modified into something with a rock-high price-tag.

These colorblock trousers are made with two pair of pants that have the exact front zipper and diagonal side pockets, plus: the seam on the front crease that will keep the sharp look all day long!
(and with the leftover parts make another pair for your BFF!)

DIY colorblock Royal Blue + Black pants // supplies:



- Boohoo - Jenna 7/8 tapered trousers: 1 pair in black and 1 pair in royal blue {gifted}
Seam Ripper
pins
- black thread and sewing machine

DIY colorblock Royal Blue + Black pants the how-to // tutorial:


Pin down (on both pair of pants) the pockets.
un-pick the hems (on both pants)
Un-do the seams on both side of the legs (on both pants)
Remove the belt on the front of the blue pants and
leave the belt on the black pants:
the back part of the belt will be still sewn on,
while the seams on the front part of the black pants will be un-sewn
and still attached only by the sides.
Put the two parts of the pants together - right sides in -
pin (or bast) and sew a straight stitch where the original seam was originally.
After the two legs are sewn together,
finish the edges with a zig-zag stitch.
Sew down the black belt on the blue front:
first by sewing down the outside part (right sides in).
Then, pin down the inner side.
And sew a straight stitch on the right side of the pants,
right in the center where the black belt and the blue front are meeting.

At this point, I decided to add the button on the front, rather than leaving the inside button... just because I like it better :) 
Use the buttonhole foot on your sewing machine to create a buttonhole on the front flap of the belt.
Sew a black button on the inner flap of the belt
and your most fashionable pants for the fall are finished!
xox, d.
