Summer Refashions

I had two pairs of pants that were too short so I cut them and hemmed them.

These ones were also too big at the waist and kept falling down, so I put some elastic in the waist (like here) and now they stay up much better. not perfect but I don't need a belt any more.
I used a straight stitch instead of a zig-zag and stretched the elastic as I went.

Another shirt copied after my favorite one.


  1. These look great. I always just roll my pants up after I cut them. This looks so much better.


  2. Thanks! And I roll some of mine to because its easier!

  3. it never occurred to me to try elastic at the back! a lot of my pants have that gap in the back, i will have to try that and see if it works for me!


I love to hear from YOU!
