Denim Shorts Refashion


What do you do when you have a favorite pair of shorts that are just a little on the short side? Well you fix then =D

Here is how I turned my favorite shorts into something special
and more modest.

Step 1

For this project I needed a quick unpick, scissors, Iron and my trusty pin cushion. First off I unpicked the original hemline of my shorts. I then ironed out the fold marks from the original hemline. Dada, longer shorts =D

Step 2

Note: if you like the beachy, casual look you could simply fray the bottom edge of the shorts). I chose the more dressy look of re-heming my shorts. I simply put in a smaller hem then the original as you can see in the pictures.

Step 3

Once I had pinned my hemline in place I ran it through the sewing machine. I chose to double stitch my hemline, you don’t need to do this, I just liked the look.

Okay, from here it’s up to you, You can leave your shorts like this or you can add alittle something like me.

I chose to put some lace on my shorts that I had previously taken off a piece of clothing I no longer wanted.

I decided to sew the lace just under my front pockets so

1st I made sure that the inside on my pockets were pinned put and out of the way

2nd I pinned the lace in place and made sure it looked just as I wanted.

3rd I sewed right around the edges of my pieces of lace and made sure it was well stitched down. (as you can see in the picture). Un pin the pockets and wow, I then had a super cute and modest pair of long shorts.

I hope you found this helpful and has inspired you to see what you have and create something more beautiful out of it!.

God Bless,
