I rescued these high-waisted shorts from my sister's throw-out pile (I hope they were bought ironically...). They were about 2 sizes too big, and basically unwearable, so I decided to try and turn them into a skirt.
Have been looking for a skirt like this for ages, so really happy with it :)
Hope the instructions make sense. I'm not a very experienced seamstress... :s
You will need:
- A pair of too big, high waisted, baggy shorts
- A sewing machine
- Fabric scissors
- Sewing pins
Tack both seams in a contrasting colour.
With a sewing machine,sew up both seams (I used a medium zig zag stitch).
The shorts I used had a turned up edge at the bottom (see earlier photos). I didn't want these sewn into the seam because it would look a little messy, so I only tacked and sewed down as far as the turned up section. More on this in the next step.
If you don't have a turn up, trim off any excess fabric at the seam after sewing, and you're done
