I looked several places for white jeans to dye into a fun color like fuchsia, lemon yellow or teal. They fit when I tried them on @ the store, but when I got home, they were too short, but they fit otherwise. So, I decided to turn them into a cute pair of white shorts! Check out Make it- Love it for some tips!
- denim jeans/ pants to turn into shorts
- tailor's chalk, chalk, or washable crayon
- fabric scissors
- sewing machine
- Washing machine AND dryer
|Try your pants on inside out and with your marking tool, draw a line at the length you want your shorts/ capris at.|
|Take them off, fold them in half so the waistband is at the top, and cut an inch (or less) below the mark you made.|
Set your sewing machine stitch length a few settings shorter. Sew a line down each leg opening of the shorts, not creating a hem. Throw them in the washer AND dryer and the denim will fray up to the line you stitched.
|Well, they turned out really awesome!|
