Step three: Using the tape measure, measure down starting at waistband to your desired length. We went with festival ready short-shorts by measuring to 8½ inches. Note: Whatever your desired length, make sure it’s below the inseam!

Step four: Keep folded and cut straight across at desired length through both legs.
