Too Long Basketball Shorts Saved

#78 Back to School Wardrobe

REFLECTIONS:  We are home for the summer at the Texas RanchHouse with 100 plus weather.
  • Shorts are the dress of the day.
  • My Grandpa age husband felt these below the knee Basketball shorts were not his style.
  • He wanted to toss, but I am still in a no new/thrifted clothes year, 
BEFORE: Husbands below the knee, too long Basketball shorts. 

STEPS:
  • Before cutting; ran stitching to hold the shorts lining to the outside shorts.
  • Cut 4” off hem. Serged.
  • Turned and top stitched.
AFTER:  Perfect RanchHouse summer shorts for the husband.

AFTER: Perfect for Grandpa's summer days at the RanchHouse.
Or maybe a cruise?
The Basketball style and 4" removed. 

AFTER

BEFORE: Below the knee, too long Basketball shorts.

These are really good looking ranch house. I think they look better with the extra white band at the bottom removed.
Great job.
