How to make denim cut off shortsI am not going to wear denim cut-off shorts. The look fabulous on supermodels. I just don't want to
Now those brave and gorgeous girls who can and want to go shorter, just cut off more leg. Easy as that.
|Before - boot cut jeans|
My mother came to visit over the holidays with a suitcase full of clothes she picked up when a friend of a friend's daughter emigrated to Australia. This girl was small and none of the clothing would fit my mothers friends. I could barely fit into her clothes myself. My daughter did well out of that suitcase. I kept this pair of jeans.
|Mark where to cut off the legs|
I'm over boot cut jeans. It was a no brainer I would up-cycle these. I wanted a nice pair of shorts for our boat. Read about that - here.
|Pin and sew hem. Or not if you prefer|
The point of this is that before you toss something, consider altering it into something you would wear. Someone with sewing skills could have sewed the lower leg pieces onto the legs and made a skirt? There are heaps of jean and denim refashions on the Internet for inspiration.
Visit the Greenie Galleries at the top of this page to see older DIYs. I've shared myriad fashion upgrades from FREE sewing patterns to tutorials for making jewelry from food packaging.
As always, I try to up-cycle or recycle.
I will be back with more next week,
