A Pocket Redo :)

27 Jul

Before you look at the picture I’m about to show you – I have these jean shorts that I bought at a consignment store. The pockets hang out of the jeans and it drives me insane!! You are probably wondering why I bought them then, so I’ll go ahead and explain the whole story. I’m tiny. End of story.

Lol – just kidding. So I wear youth size clothes because I’m really petite and even though I’m a Mom, none of the women’s clothes fit my body at all  – nor do they look anywhere near appealing. So I shop in the youth section. Finding something that fits me well, isn’t childish looking, and especially with shorts – aren’t TOO short is a tough battle. These jean shorts are mostly worn for painting, doing work outside, and being lazy around the house. I don’t wear them out but I still wanted a pair that fit nicely so picked these up thinking they would be perfect.

The pockets kill me. I flip them up under my jeans but they always fall back down so I finally decided to fix them myself.

I pinned where I wanted to sew and set the sewing machine to one of my favorite stitches. It looks like the sixth stitch on the first row:

Then I took my scissors and cut off the extra fabric on the bottom and TADA:

My shorts are no longer driving me crazy and ready to get some work done 😉



Thanks for stopping by!


Love Always,

    I have seen soooooo many people walking around with their pockets hanging out of their shorts recently. It looks so silly and it’s so easy to fix. They all need to read your blog 😉

      Hahaha! I think it’s “in” right now to have your pockets hang out – but it just drives me insane! ❤ Hopefully it helps someone 😉
