4 Ways to Turn Pants into Shorts





Hemmed:
1. Turn pants inside out
2. Mark desired length with a line
3. Cut 1 inch below ‘desired length line’
4. Serge both pant legs so they don’t fray (optional)
5. Fold and iron at ‘desired length line’
6. Sew all around both pant legs

Cut & Fold:
1. Mark desired length with a line
2. Cut 1 inch below ‘desired length line’
3. Fold (toward outside of pants so raw edge is showing) and iron at ‘desired length line’
4. Tack (sew a few stitches back and forth) so it won’t unfold. Tack along the sides and front and back.

Rolled:
1. Turn pants inside out
2. Mark desired length with a line
3. Cut 2 inches below ‘desired length line’
4. Turn pants right-side out
5. Fold 1 inch and iron
6. Fold 1 inch again and iron
7. Tack (sew a few stitches back and forth) so it won’t unfold. Tack along the sides and front and back.

Cut:
1. All in the name… cut it and you’re done! Edges will fray naturally after wearing and washing.
