Refashioned shorts

Added Mar 12, 2010

These are refashioned from a boring old pair of men’s business pants. You can read more about the process on my blog

Material Notes

Some sort of wool blend. The fabric is actually a little boring. I think I might make another pair in a more interesting fabric.




Garment Type
Preppy, Romantic, Vintage

    For a “boring” fabric, you’ve done great things with it. Style is everything (almost)! Super!

    So good! I love the shape at the front. If I’d wear shorts I would copy you immediately.

    I know this is irrelevant, but I’m always so jealous of your lovely home and decor! :-)

      Hilarious! Thank you, but don’t be jealous. That is the only acceptable square metre of my house, hence why every single photo is taken in that exact location!

    I’m hearing you on the busy/lazy thing… whenever you get to it – I’m struggling to find sewing time of late. PS may just steal your re-fashion idea too – sooo cute these shorts

      Thank you, thank you. Sorry, your pattern will be coming soon! I haven’t forgotten, I am just busy and lazy which makes me doubly slow.
