I know, I know... I should have taken them back and exchanged them for a 31" leg but I didn't. I was indecisive and needed to wear them so decided it was me. Guess not, although they look fine worn with walking boots and even sandles, they look too short with shoes. Even though I am only going to be wearing them around the house or for walking they were bugging me so much I decided to do something with them.
In my assortment of rag bags, I had inherited some odd and sods of fabric ribbons from when our school closed. Not enough of each to do both pairs so decided on two different looks. I needed to trim off the fat hem on the bottom of each pair (losing another 1/2" in the process), sew the ribbons together, strengthen them with iron on vilene and attach. Not an easy job as I am not a fantastic seamstress but hey, no pain no gain right? (DB had to cut through the blue air to get to the kitchen on occasions!)
