DIY from a loose capri pants to a not too skimpy shorts :-D

My Precious! EC (Edward Cullen) Forever Top! ;-D
Go Team Edward! Fighting! ;-D I was getting ready to attend a thanksgiving dinner over at our family friend's place in our village. And then I saw my EC Forever Top, which I got at Target and wore on the first screening day of Eclipse. I made sure! So yes, I'm in the mood to be a cheerleader (I was actually!;-P), so I might as well dress the part. So while I was scavenging on my closet on what to pair it with, I came across a hand me down pants that was a bit on the traditional side...a loose fitting capri denim pants. I actually accepted it because I had a vision of what I could make out of it, but i was dilly dallying the trip to the tailor. I had an epiphany, so I went to work...

I fitted it, then marked the length. Cut it with the regular scissors (nothing fancy), then folded the rest, then did a back stitch on the shown areas to both side of the pants. ;-D
Voilà! My not too skimpy shorts! ;-D 
Instant Outfit! ;-D  Sorry about the photo, I told you my DSLR is on vacation without me. 
It took me about 30 minutes to do everything. Indeed, if there's a will, there's a way! Save the Cheerleader, Save the World! ;-D

To complete the ensemble, I'm wearing my FitFlop Hooper and my Coach Sling Bag.

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
