free fashion refashion
Problem: less than no money in the 'Steph gets new clothes' fund. Solution: rework some of what I got!
I've been seeing cute cut off jean shorts (jorts) all summer and knew that I just needed some but the cheapskate in me wouldn't fork over the money for them! I decided to just make my own. It was SO simple, required no sewing and cost me absolutely nothing!
First, I got an old pair of jeans, a pair of shorts that I like the length of and sharp scisors
Second, I folded the shorts and jeans the same way and laid the shorts on top of the jeans to measure the length.
I wanted to try a longer length first and so I cut a few inches down from the bottom of my shorts
Here is what they looked like...
Then I rolled up the bottoms...
And tried them on...in an abundance of sunlight...
then decided that as much as I liked them, I wanted them a wee bit shorter. So, I cut them again...
And once again tried them on.
There you have it...my completely free and oh, so stylish! I know that is looks as though one leg is longer than the other but I promise, it's just the way I was standing...I had to set my timer and take a picture myself.
I even used the scraps for a little something special...I'll share that little goody with you tomorrow.
