Scalloped Shorts

I had a pair of white pants from the thrift store for 2 years. I never had an opportunity to wear them plus I found them a bit too baggy. The waist was fine and it was beautifully lined.

As it is summer, I was lacking in dressier shorts to wear and I found myself pinning scalloped shorts.

 So with some trepidation, I cut away the length of the pants and started working on the scalloped edges.

I made the scallops a lot smaller than my pinned images but I am pretty happy with them. Can't wait to get more wear out of them than I ever have with the longer trousers. If you are interested in any of the projects I have made, and want some instructions, please leave a comment and I will endeavour to write one up. However, this is a fairly easy project, and there are many good tutorials on how to make scalloped hemlines.

Cost of project: $4.00 for thrifted pants.
