REFASHION: short girl solutions

Summer may be ending soon, but the warm weather will continue to linger for a few more months. With enough pretty shirts in my closet, I finally summed my courage and motivation to start sewing shorts. I'm really good at turning my husband's old pants or jeans into shorts, but oddly enough, I only have three pairs of casual shorts and one pair of gym shorts I depend on.

After rummaging through my refashion bins, I found two pairs of too small sweatpants I could refashion into more comfy and roomy shorts and make them my size. I started with the red pair and cut off the legs at my preferred length, and I inserted a new panel (from the cast off legs) on each side.

I tend to forget to work on the everyday refashions too. Great reminder and I like the expansion technique.

Thanks! I really wanted red gym shorts but I didn't want to shop all over the place. I'm a happy girl now.
