So, they're just a bit shorter, that's all
A few years ago, I bought a pair of denim pants made of some sort of non-cotton fabric. The first time I washed it, the darn thing shrank -- by nearly a whole size. I muttered some choice words and threw it in the garage sale pile.
Fast forward, and I came across them again while digging through that pile after I lost some weight. (and no, we won't talk about why I still have a garage sale pile).
I tried them on, and they fit in the waist (yes!). But now they were too short! Looked like I was ready for a flood.
So, I cut 'em off to capri length. I liked the results so much that I grabbed a pair of khaki pants that had frayed along the hemline and cut them into capris, too.
So, two additions to my summer wardrobe at no cost! Maybe I should dig through that pile again, eh?
