I have a habit of keeping my pants for as long as I can still use them, even if they go out of style. Shopping for new items becomes a chore for me, especially when I have days where I just want to stay home and not go out.
Re-styling clothes gives me more satisfaction as compared as going out to buy something new. I get to use my creative juices and ,at the same time, I save some money for myself.
This easy D-I-Y is on how to make your worn out pants into casual shorts.
Needle & Thread
#1 Use a pair of pants you think are out of style and be ready to “get rid of them”.
#2 Use a pair of shorts you already own to determine the length you would like, or wear the pants and determine how long or short you want it.
#3 Draw with a pencil to guide you, and cut it carefully & cleanly.
#4 Fold the end of the shorts twice, and make sure the fold is 1 inch wide.
#5 Sew the sides of the shorts to the folded ends. This makes sure that the shorts stay in shape, and keep the fold in place.
#6 Iron the fold to make the fold more permanent.
And you’re done!
Now give new life to an old pair of jeans, and save yourself a pretty penny.
