Making Shorts School Appropriate

Today is forecast to be 20 degrees, so there will probably be some warm schools out there. The older kids may want to wear their shorts, but sometimes those comfy Summer shorts are deemed unacceptable for school. What to do? Colleen has the solution.

It has been difficult for us to find shorts that are long enough to be appropriate for school, so we have had to take matters into our own hands!


Step One. Buy some trim for your too short shorts. I bought mine at Fabricland.


Step Two. Pin the trim to the inside of the short legs.


Step Three. Sew up seam of trim, then sew trim to short legs.

Voila. Shorts that will please teens, tweens and school Principals!
