D.I.Y. Jean Shorts


My husband doesn’t ask me to sew anything for him so when he asked for me to make some jeans into shorts I couldn’t say no.


I’m sure these jeans look ok at first glance, but they were pretty long and torn up on the back from him constantly stepping on them. It’s getting hotter by the day here so shorts make sense.


I had him put the jeans on and show me how long he wanted them.



I cut straight across with my rotary cutter.


Using a seam ripper I opened the inseam and split it. It you don’t split it the hem won’t lay perfectly flat. Sew.


Complete! One more pair of shorts to add to his collection.
