It all started with the dreaded words, "Oh, I'll just clean out a couple things from my closet." It wasn't going to be a big overhaul. Oh no. Just grab the first few things I see that I'm sure I'll never wear again...you know, make a bit more room.
Ha. That never happens. Cue Scene: Closet Empty. Bedroom: Total Mess.
Anyway, that little escapade is how I came across an old pair of white pants that I no longer wear. They've been washed (and definitely dried) a few too many times without care....they're a little short :>) They also have some strange black markings right below the right knee that will. not. come. off. I was getting ready to throw them out last week when I looked down at my most favorite pair of summer shorts and thought, it's worth a try!
I'll go through the steps at the end. Warning: This may be the easiest project in the history of DIY's.
Step 1: Lay out pants.
Step 2: Place shorts you are using as your pattern on top. Try to get the edges to line up as close as possible.
Step 3: Cut about a half inch to 3/4 inch below the bottom of pattern shorts. (I just eyeballed this because I knew I would be rolling up the bottom edge of my new white shorts - and with cut-offs, the messier the better!)
Step 4: Roll up bottom edge and put 'em on!
I told you. So easy. Hardly blogworthy :>)
Moral of Story: Don't chuck 'em, cut 'em!
