I was looking at the cost of shorts online the other day and they cost almost the same amount as jeans and yet they have much less fabric. I thought this was just crazy and one of those things in life I will never quite understand.
I basically made these the same way that I did the capris to shorts refashion a while back. This time I wanted the shorts to be longer so I made sure the final in-seam was at 5 inches.
I wasn’t sure originally if I would include these in my summer wardrobe. I thought I would make them for going to the beach or something like that. Now, I think I am going to include them in my summer wardrobe because I think I would actually get a lot of use out of these. So you just may be seeing these soon.
Who knows, if the weather is terribly hot when we get back to Florida, I may update my spring wardrobe with these guys.
I actually think that I am going to be changing out many items in my current spring capsule once I get back to Florida, so I definitely will be doing an updated post to share that with you all.
What I love the most about these shorts is the length. They are very long and I feel so comfortable in them. However, if I want to make them a little shorter I can easily do that by rolling them up.
So here are the shorts at their full length:
I am super excited to have these shorts and that I was able to repurpose an old pair of jeans. I love how learning to sew is giving me the opportunity to create a wardrobe I love but also save money and repurpose old things.
Have you ever repurposed old jeans to shorts?
