Griff has all these great pants. The length has been too short for a while, but the waist is still just fine. I saw this post on re-purposing boy pants from make it and love it. She always has the best stuff and I have recreated many of her projects. Although, I did not recreate pockets, I did use the idea. I took these old pants. I really liked them with all the pockets and grunge look (call me a product of the 90’s).
I really liked the hems on these pants. So I thought about this tutorial on hemming pants with the original cuff by Sew Much Ado. Why not apply this idea to shorts? So I cut the original hems off the pants.
Then cut them off around the knee where I could get a clean cut.
Then I followed the directions from Sew Much Ado. After sewing, I pulled them outside right and ironed them like crazy. Then got them on my model! Tada!
They came out great. I plan on doing this to all his winter pants now. I won’t have to purchase any summer shorts. Perfect!
