Here is a SUPER easy sewing project for your summer time boy!
Take a men's shirt and turn it into shorts!
What is so nice about use the men's shirt is that your legs are already hemmed! : )
Here is what you will need:
(You use her pants pattern and shorten it for the shorts)
1. Cut out Dana's Pattern pieces and mark on the pattern how long you want your shorts to be... I used a pair of shorts my son already had. Remember the legs are already hemmed so you don't need to add a seam allowance!
2. Cut out the front and the back pieces
3. Cut out your pocket pieces out of the extra fabric of the shirt.
(honestly she has better pictures and directions that what I could do!)
Love love love!!
The boy and the shorts!
I made this shirt into these shorts.
Here are some shorts I made out of Seersucker material using the same pattern.... I love this pattern... so easy for some awesome boy shorts!
Of course I made a shirt to match! I just cut out the shape of a 3 and used Wonderunder to attach it to the shirt and hand embroidered around it.
Made is celebrating the SUMMER boy this week!
