I love dresses, long flowing skirts moving with the breeze. Maybe it's from growing up with my grandmothers. I don't think I ever saw either of them in anything but long dresses, even while gardening. Here's an easy and quick way to get rid of old tees and have a new dress all at the same time.
As I recall, pedal pushers weren't as long as capri pants and they weren't as tight at the bottom. Capris were tight all the way to the ankle and never had cuffs. They looked best on Audrey Hepburn. Pedal pushers stopped at the calf and were usually cuffed. They were more Mitzi Gaynor's style. I never wore either. I tried on a pair of pedal pushers in a department store dressing room when I was 12 and didn't like how they looked, so I never tried on a pair of pants again.
