Learn the art of making a fine pair of shorts from torn or ruined trousers, or even turning winter pants into summer pants before they're outgrown. It's easier than you think. You will need: 1 pair long pants scissors needle and thread pins chalk ruler measuring tape iron Now to start turning pants into shorts Pin the pants where the new length will be. If you're working with torn pants, cut them off below the tear and work from there. Turn the pants inside out and work out where you need to cut. Ideally this will be about 5cm below the actual length you want the shorts to be. Measure up from the bottom of the pants with the tape measure and mark two points with chalk. Join these two points together with a chalk line using the ruler so that you get a horizontal cut line. Then 2.5cm up from that mark, use the chalk to mark again. This will be your seam allowance. Lay one leg on top of the other and match the chalk marks up. Cut each pant leg across the lower chalk mark. Fold the edge up to the first marked line and press with an iron. Fold again to the length line and press again. Do the same to both legs and pin the hem into place. Then using the needle and thread, hem all the way around on both legs.
