It's definitely spring here in southern California, and summer is just around the corner. The weather has been beautiful recently and it's made me want to dig out of the closet my capris and flip flops. But instead, all I found was long pants, mostly jeans. Last summer I was still working on my post baby body, so I didn't really buy any new clothes but rather made do with what I had. So this summer was looking pretty bleak- until I decided to take matter into my own hands!
I confess, I didn't take any before pictures of these jeans. I completely forgot and didn't really think it would be that interesting to blog about to be honest. But then I started thinking that a little mini series of turning-pants-into-capris tutorials might be of interest to someone. So I'll have to fumble my way through this first tutorial and the next one will be better.
2. For this style, I wanted a 5" hem, so add 5" to the inseam length. Now add 1/2" for the hem. My total is now 26+5+1/2= 31 1/2".
3. With your pants right side out, cut off the bottom of the legs at 31 1/2" from the crotch.
4. Turn pants inside out and turn up 1/2" and press. This is your new hem.
