Cuff Pants, I LOVE Them!

So, here's the scoop, I have been wanting some cuff pants since Melissa wore them hosting "Bachelor Pad". They were crazy and different and I felt like I needed them. Well, I am still poor, so I thought my best bet of having them would be to alter some pants of my own into cuff pants. The problem? I have pretty much altered the crap out of all of my pants, and didn't have the heart to give them surgery one more time, so Link and I went to Goodwill yesterday and while I was there I found these fabulous pants (black with floral design) that were just a little big for me, and flares. I would NEVER have worn them as flares, but the minute I saw these fancy pants I knew I had to make them into cuff pants. So, that is what I did! What do you think?

{This is the pattern upclose and personal}

I used these as my inspiration:

How do you feel about cuff pants? I am really excited about how these turned out and I was surprised how much longer they made my legs look. Pleasantly surprised of course :) Tutorial will follow shortly.
