    DIY Thrifted Shirt into Pencil Skirt Tutorial. Because this shirt was made out of stretchy fabric it was easy to turn it into a skirt. Tutorial from Trash to Couture here.  *Love the on trend semi-photo realistic graphics.

    DIY Shorts Using Fabric Insets for the Sides.

    366dayswithsabrina:

    I’ve been itching to make DIY shorts for a couple of weeks na. So, I’ll show you how I did mine. (Well, actually my mom made it but anyway. Love you, Ma!)

    Here’s a pair of jeans that I used to wear when I was 10 years old or so and it was too small for me. This is where the magic begins.

    image

    Cut the jeans into your desired length.

    image

    Once you got the desired length, start cutting both sides. 

    This part was a bit challenging to do since the metal buttons (?) are way too hard to remove.

    When you’re done with the sides, measure how much cloth you’ll need to add.

    Then, make big stitches to keep them stable before sewing it. 

    image

    Remember to sew it twice when you’re using the sewing machine just to be sure and cut the hanging threads and stuff. 

    Yup. I think that’s it? Thankyou! ☺
