Real Tree Pants Fix

Hey Blogging World,

I found a pair of real tree brand pants at goodwill it usually costs $90 I found it for $7 they were too big and too long (They were men's size 30) though so I hemmed to the bottom up about 4 inches and sewed the sides thinner & the crotch higher. Now they fit. I would never be able to afford pants that expensive and I got them for 7 bucks!!!!!


During the process 
Turned inside out then marked were I was going to sew

Pinned it

Sew on the lines
Cut off the excess fabric. About a half an inch from the stitches

Zig Zag on the edge to prevent fraying 

Hem the bottoms up 4 inches



Over all it worked out awesome. 
Talk to you later

Shorts too Short (no problem)

Hey Blogging World,

In today's society less is more. In the form of short shorts & short prom dresses ect etc etc.... Well with my long legs basically any shorts I would purchase look like short shorts on me so what I did and what I am going to show you is I bought jeans that fit in the waist and measured from the top down 14 inches then from the bottom to that mark I made And cut off the legs. Then I sewed around the shorts leg about half an inch from the edge so it would not fray to much.

I am probably going to make a skirt with the pants legs. I will post it if I do.
