Do you ever walk into your closet and look around and say to yourself, "I have nothing to wear". I do that all the time! At the beginning of summer I actually didn't have any shorts to wear. Those joys of losing baby weight and clothes not fitting. I have a hard time finding shorts too because they are either capris or too short. I found a pair of navy flares that I love how they fit me around the waist, but don't care for the flares. So I decided to turn them into a fun pair of shorts. I made these two months ago and they are by far my favorite pair of shorts right now. And they still look amazing.
Here are the pants before:
First thing I did was cut them at the knee and hemmed them up.
Then using white fabric paint and a pencil, I made the dots.
I carefully put the dots all over the pants. Then I waited a couple hours and painted the other side. Be careful that they don't fold, or paint gets everywhere (I know that from experience). I then hung them up in my closet and let it dry for 24 hours before wearing them.
And this is what they look like on, I love them!
