Want a funky pair of pants? Swap the legs for a unique twist on a wardrobe staple!
I love taking simple pieces of clothing and mixing everything up. I've made a two-tone cardigan before, but I don't know why I never thought to mix up the legs of a pair of pants. :)

When I was choosing the colors of the pants, I didn't want to choose colors that contrasted too much (blue+orange, red+green, purple+yellow) for fear that I'd look like some Harlequin-like character, so I decided to go with cobalt and navy.

    First you need two pairs of identical pants. I got mine at Forever21. Then you need to rip out the seams that connect the two legs together.

    Step 4

    Since I don't have a serger, I stitched a zigzag stitch to strengthen the seams between the two pant legs. I also stitched the pockets shut on the pants so that the pants would lie nicer when you're wearing them. I *hate* how trouser-like pants have pockets that buckle out. :)
