Now for the second episode of Shorts To Bloomers!
(If you missed episode 1, it's a version for those with a serger and can be found here.)
Once again I used the Simple 30 Min. Shorts with the extension in length as noted on pattern.
Iron and stitch the hem on both legs leaving a small opening to insert elastic.
Measure elastic 1" longer than the width of the leg. In this case, the leg of the shorts measure 7" so I cut my elastic 8". Insert elastic in opening and thread through the hem with a large safety pin. Sew the elastic ends together and sew the opening closed.
Voila! Shorts are now bloomers! Easy as that!
