Happy new month my readers, I can’t believe it’s now August, just the other day it was January and now we are counting down to Christmas. Anyway I bought this pair of jeans last year, but when I tried them on they were a bit short for my liking, so I decided to turn them into pair of shorts…continue reading

What you’ll need: jeans/pants, pair of scissors, tape measure, sewing machine/thread & need.

 

  • Measure yourself and note down the measurement. Spread out your jeans/pants and mark the length you want using chalk. If you don’t have a tape measure, you can use another pair of shorts that you already have as sample and place over your jeans/pants to get the length.

 


 

  • Cut out the marked area using sharp scissors. To make it easier after you have cut the first leg, place it over the full leg and cut out this will help you to get the same length as the other leg.

 


 

  • This is the length I cut out, bearing in mind seam allowance.

 


 

  • Use your sewing machine to sew the hem in place. I decided to add cuffs on my pair of short. If you can’t be bothered to sew your shorts you can wear them by folding the loose ends to form a cuff without hemming them. I used razor blade to create the distressed look

 



 

  • What do you guys think about my pair of distressed shorts?
