Like I said we’ve been having some uncharacteristic HOT weather.
I needed some shorts to wear.
I perused the second hand stores but didn’t find any shorts I would wear in my price range ( Extremely CHEAP).
Turning pants into shorts should be an easy task. Simply cut the legs to the desired length. Where do you think the term “cut-offs” came from?
This pair was a bit more complicated than that as the legs of the cut off shorts were too snug around my thighs.
To solve my dilemma I split the side seam, cut a gusset (triangular shape) from the cut off portion, and sewed it into the open seam. (Sorry no step-by-step pictures)
By doing this adjustment I added 3” to each leg. I now have a cool comfortable pair of floral shorts.
Do you do any refashioning? Tell me about it in a comment.
