As an avid Thrift shopper, I always tend to find the dopest vintage pattern pants, the problem, they are always too short! With Coachella coming up, I wanted to incorporate a fun pattern short into one of my looks, and well, these pants seems perfect for the occasion. Below you will find a quick tutorial on how you can turn any long pant into shorts with an added pom pom trim.
If you are only looking into revamping old shorts, just skip a few steps and you will be all set. Happy crafting!
Pants or Shorts
Pom pom trim (available at fabric or craft stores)
Double Stick Fusible Web
Wear the pants inside out and use a sharpie or fabric pen to mark how short you’d link your shorts to be.
Take the pants off and draw, then cut a diagonal line, starting from the inseam, about 2″ or more from the crotch, and ending 1/2″ below the mark straight across. (MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE EXTRA FABRIC ALONG THE LINES)
Turn the shorts inside out and begin to place double stick fusible tape along the line you drew. (repeat this front and back on each short leg)
Fold in and pin down your edge to create a clean seam.
Hot iron the seams down to melt the fusible tape into securing the fabric in place. (repeat this front and back on each short leg)
Turn the shorts right side out. Pin the pom pom trim on the outside of the leg openings.
Sew in place, either by hand or with a sewing machine.
