Carpis to Bloomers Upcycling

It's been several months since I wore these capri pants last. White pants make me nervous. I usually spill something on them or cover them in dirt and grass stains (I do work with children, after all). So, I decided it was time to give these pants a little make-over.

I started by dying them black.

Then I used a yard of inexpensive, black lace, gathered at each cuff, to give them a fancier look. It's amazing how much that little bit of lace changed the look of the whole pair of pants. They went from looking like a pair of rugged canvas capris to looking like lace trimmed Victorian bloomers.
