another function of a zipper

... Remember these?
Well, first of all I need to brag a little because Outi was kind enough to mention my tutorial in her post.


Well, these pants were originally some plain, blue, cropped pants.


After sewing on all the zippers I love them. ...except: I wasn't too thrilled about that cropped length, way too cropped. 



As often enough happens, I ended up using my seam ripper on the hem, and since the pants had already few washes before the refashion, there it was, the nasty discolored hem line.

My plan was including yet another zipper, two, to be exact: one on each side ;)...


--> doityourself:
* measure the circumference of the hem line of your pants
* get your zippers and if you can't find the exact size... follow my tutorial here 
leave a little more extra ribbon on
* bast your zippers in a way that will hide that ugly hem line, by leaving the zipper pull on the outside of your legs

* sew the top part first and the bottom part while hemming the little extra fabric (if any) of your pants 
* I just gave your pants that extra 1-1/2" length!
