In my post on Thursday (that you can read here) I mentioned I picked up a few charity shop goodies, including a pair of trousers that I wanted to make into shorts. So today I did just that! Here is what I did and how they turned out…
So first step was to get the trousers and a sharp pair of scissors.
I then just had to be brave, take a deep breath and CUT!
I was just going to turn up the bottoms and leave them but that seemed a bit too boring! I had a hunt around and found some left over lace from a recent project and thought it would look pretty on the bottom. If I had a sewing machine this would have taken two minutes but I had to sew it on by hand. Thankfully I find it quite therapeutic and I did it while watching Homeland (if you don’t watch it you should).
I then added some studs (that I had left over from the DIY studded collar that you can see here) round the pockets for a final touch.
I am pretty pleased with these! Look out for them in an outfit of the day soon!
How has your weekend been?
