I have a uni reunion next Friday with all my old housemates and I’ve been outfit hunting for ages! I bought a pair of high waisted denim shorts from Boohoo but I wasn’t too keen on the length of them, they seemed far too long. So I decided to put my fashion degree to some use and chop them up 🙂
2- I measured from the inside crotch of a pair of shorts I already owned to get the desired length
3- I then marked this on my new shorts using tailors chalk
4 – I used a pattern master to ensure a straight line all the way around
5 – I then cut along the line and repeated for the other leg
6 – This is what the shorts looked like after both legs were cut
7 – I then ran them under my sewing machine using a straight stitch and 1.5 cm seam allowance to stop all the fabric fraying too much
8 – The shorts after being sewn.
