After | The printed pants

You’d never guess that these shorts…


Used to look like these pants


It was almost a shame to chop those up.


But I got over it fast.


Because I’ll be wearing these shorts all summer long. If we get a summer, that is. (Come on, Vancouver! It’s mid-June for crying out loud.)

    So adorable! Love seeing these transformations.

    You know what else would have been okay? Making them into stirrups! I’m for real.

    That is a FABULOUS idea.
    Floral shorts are my favourite- I like mine a little more subtle though, think I am going to buy these this week!

    Now that’s some fancy recycling. Nicely done. What are you going to do with the left over fabric? You could make Nic some leg warmers.
