Recently, I was going through my wardrobe and getting rid of the stuff I haven’t worn in a while, but I kept an eye out for things that I could mend or refashion. I thought these khakis would be a perfect candidate for a refashioning that would combine a couple of details from these shorts I found on Pinterest.
So here’s a simple tutorial on how to turn pants into a cute pair of shorts – just in time for summer. (Click on images for a closer look.)
Cut 45 degree angles on each strip end, overlap two strips right-sides-together, and sew a 1/4″ seam. Press seam open. Connect all strips together in this manner making two equal lengths. Determine the length of your sash by measuring your waist and doubling or tripling that length (depending on how big of a bow you want to be able to tie).
