Little Boys’ Shorts from Men’s Dress Shirt

boys shorts from mens dress shirt

 

There may be a hint of fall in the air, but, at least where I live, there’s plenty of shorts weather ahead. That’s why I love this refashion — inevitably, as summer wanes, little boys have just about destroyed their summer shorts and need more … so why not refashion some? Check out this awesome sewing tutorial and make some boy-approved shorts from a men’s dress shirt!

Turn Old Pants Into Shorts

This is a refashion that I really could have used lately – I just went and bought a bunch of shorts. Why did I do that? Especially when everyone knows that pants are just shorts with legs. My favorite part? The little bit of fabric peeking out from the cuffs, because we hoarders all have a bunch of fabric, and this is the perfect use for it!

Turn Trousers Into Vintage Style Shorts

refashioned scallop shorts

What do you do when you have a pair of business trousers, but you need a pair of shorts? Cut the legs off and add piping! Lilly was so industrious that she also hand sewed lace trim into the pockets and scallop. I love her style, and these would look so cute with a pair of wedges and a nautical tee. I think these would also be cute made with patterned pants as well, don’t you?
