DIY PROJECT - MAKING THE CUT

What do you do when bored on a Saturday night at home? One of the things I do best is recreating my clothes. Dig out those trousers you have been holding onto and increase your wardrobe.

Take out your old jeans, lay them out flat on the table and measure the length you'd like your shorts to be (Tailored shorts should graze the top of your knee and frame your thigh).

Make sure you cut as straight as possible and try to use scissors that are sharp or you'll be struggling through the material.

sew

Here is the result.

Also, driving moccasins has been my default weekend shoes.

What do you then when you're bored?
