Remember that old pair of jeans you have sitting in the back of your closet? Maybe they’re too short, too loose or too long but Stylist Anna B. has a great way to bring new life to those jeans! Don’t donate them just yet – turn your old jeans into shorts in just a few easy steps.
What You’ll Need
A pair of jeans in your choice of wash (we recommend favorite boyfriend or straight)
Step one: Gather your materials.
Step two: Fold the pants in half with button side facing up and pull out extra fabric at inseam.
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.
Step five: Using the safety pin, shred the bottom of the shorts to create fringe.
Step six: Wear your shorts!
