Wardrobe Update – Shorts edition

Hi everyone!

Spring is (almost) here and I’ve been meaning to update some shorts. I had some free time so finally got down to work. Just hemming shorts to a new length makes a difference. See below for before and afters!

The print is really risqué but that’s one of the things I love about it! It’s not like 10.Deep to tread lightly.

Unfortunately, I don’t have before pictures of the JACK shorts I altered. Just image a wide self belt cinched with the waistband up and long straight legs that end above the knee. Basically a pair of paper bag shorts without any shape. By simply hemming the shorts, flipping the waistband down and switching out the self tie or a braided tie, it looked infinitely better. I also added snaps to the center front and the back pockets. I finished it just in time for my trip to Hawaii next week!

I have another pair of shorts in work. Will post as soon as I’m finished!

Happy sewing!

Sweater Scraps > Arm Warmers

Hi lovelies,

One of my coworkers cut the sleeves off this cashmere sweater and was going to toss them. They were so soft that I wanted to come up with an upcycle project and not have them go to waste. A couple minutes on the sewing machine later, I had a pair of new arm warmers!

Do you have an upcycle project you’d like to share? Shoot me a line!

I still have lots of clothing alterations to get through – there’s never enough time in the day. I’ll try to make some progress and post as I go!

Until next time!

xoxo
