This is an easy and fast do it yourself project where I transformed a pants into shorts. Have fun! 🙂
Step 1) You put on the pants you want and with a piece of chalk you draw a line how long you want your short to be but you take 2 inches more.
Step 2) You fold the pants and cut where you draw the line.
Step 3) Next it’s your choice how you want the edges to be, folded inwards our outwards. I decided to do it outwards (left leg). You pin the edges or you take the pants of very carefully.
Step 4) You sew a couple of times the left and the right of your short and you’re finished. you might have to iron the shorts before you can actually wear them without the edges coming out.
The next step is your own choice. I added on another pair of shorts some ‘decoration’.
Step 1) The piece you want to sew on your short you cut out in lace (or an other kind of fabric). I decided to do 1 side of the pants (without the pocket).
Step 2) You handsew the piece on to your shorts and you’re all done.
This is my finishing result. 🙂
