Project Re-Style #22 Scalloped Shorts

Happy Monday everyone, and welcome to Project Re-Style #22. 
I hope you are all having  a wonderful, Holiday weekend. My Schedule for the next two weeks is going to be  a little crazy, because I am working a little more at my second job,  plus, my precious daughter, is about to Graduate from High school.
:) and :(  at the same time.
Wow! where does the time go.?
If you are just joining me on my project Re-Style journey  then, WELCOME,!  I am doing one re-style project every Monday for 52 weeks,  that's right, one solid year of Re-Styling . This is week 22, which means I have 22, new pieces, added to my wardrobe, for free 
All of the details for project Re-style, will be at the end of this post.
This week's restyle was inspired by a late night,  no sleeping, search fest, on the internet, and my daughter and I talking about how great the 1940's clothes were.

Scalloped Shorts.


 This was a really, really easy DYI.  I think the hardest thing was deciding how short I wanted them to be.  
You don't want them too long, or they look funny, and too short,~ well hoochee mama is not for me.. You could also do  this with a pair of old jeans.

Things you need
1. Pair of pants or capri's that you don't want anymore.
2. Scissors
3. Drinking Glass 
4. Chalk or Marker 

  Try on your pants and Measure how short you want them. Mark with chalk, Now Fold your pants in half smooth them out and cut a straight line where you measured.

Take your glass and trace it along the bottom of your pants, then cut out carefully. You could stitch a round the edge with a sewing machine  using  a decorative stitch,which is what I think I am going to do, or you could leave as is, depending on the material of your pants.
And ......

Just a few ways I might style these.:) I couldn't help myself, I had to do it.

 now, you are done, and you have a new pair of dressier shorts for summer.
I just wanted to thank everyone for all your well wishes. I truly appreciate each one of you, and all your wonderful comments. Thank you, for always being so supportive and kind. I haven't had a chance to respond your your emails, but I will,  I promise.

 22 down 30 to go.
Have a wonderful Monday off everyone!!   
I can not believe it is Summer time! 
I love having my children home for summer.
Yay!!! Summer!
