A while back I turned a skirt into a pair of shorts (see post). This time I did the opposite.
This was a whole lot easier.
I basically ripped out the center seam, turned the shorts inside out, and sewed along the dashed lines as shown below:
I cut off the excess and hemmed as necessary. And that was it!
Cost of project? Just the shorts, which I thrifted here for $3.50. And it has pockets! :)
