I’m so excited to team up with Zalando today to share a DIY version of a big trend this season – the dressy track pant! I saw plenty on Topshop and after seeing the price tag of this Gucci pair, my jaw dropped, I then lost all hope and eventually, I started dreaming up a way to make my own pair.

Zalando regularly share DIY fashion ideas so I was really excited to get involved. I picked out a pair of floral dressy trousers on Zalando, got some DIY supplies and made my own pair of dressy track pants. I absolutely love how these turned out and have been wearing then non-stop since I made them (well, that’s only two days in a row but you get the picture, I really like them!)


Here’s the written details of what you’ll need:

  • Floral trousers
  • Hemming web (with baking paper ideally)
  • 4cm ribbed cream ribbon
  • 1.5cm ribbed orange ribbon
  • Scissors
  • A needle & thread
  • An iron

Make sure to watch the video above for the full how-to.

Just a word of warning – if you do end up making these, I would really suggest hand washing them to make sure you don’t have any issues with the iron-on hemming web. Theoretically it should be OK, but better safe than sorry.
