Turn Pants into Shorts

How to Turn Pants into Shorts on MADE Everyday with Dana Willard

I’m totally in denial about summer being over.
I mean, it’s still 90 degrees here in Texas.  And I’m still wearing shorts.  So summer hasn’t quite disappeared.  But I guess I’m more in denial about waking up early for school with the kids, which really means: less late-night-Netflix binges.

But let’s talk about shorts.
I love shorts.

And if you have a hard time finding the length of shorts you want in the store, then just create your own!  This is the semi-homemade version.  I’ve shared some of these steps before HERE.  But now you get the video version!

I start with a cheap pair of pants or jeans (from H&M, Forever 21, Old Navy, Target, etc):

    If you turn the pants inside out, you will be able to easily stitch from the right side. This is preferable for several reasons.
