DIY: DOPE MEN SEW LATEST STYLE

DIY: MODIFIED CARGO PANTS INTO WOOL DRESS SLACKS

See what a little modification and change of fabric can do…

Yo whats up!

A few months back we launched a cargo pants pattern for SEW SEW DEF and today we’re revisiting it with a style change. The first thing I did was choose a wool plaid fabric to up the garment quality. I also removed the cargo pockets, belt loops, and extended the waistband by 3.5 inches.

At the end of all the modifications my pants ended up being a nice tapered pair of slacks. I styled these slacks with a tan wool waistcoat and green wool blazer that coordinates with the plaid color in the pants. Lastly, I matched the brown in my wingtip brogue boots with a brown bow tie that completes my stylish dapper look.

waistcoat- vintage

    Hello outstanding blog! Does running a blog like this take a
    great deal of work? I have virtually no expertise in computer programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the
    near future. Anyway, if you have any suggestions or tips for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic however I
    simply had to ask. Appreciate it!
