"Do you have some shorts that you don’t wear anymore? Give them a whole new lease on life with a few cuts and stitches, and turn them into a funky skirt with contrasting triangle godet panels! This full Refashion Shorts into a Skirt tutorial has lots of explanations and photos shows you how to open up the seams, trim the edges and measure the spaces. Then cut the pieces of contrast fabric for the godet inserts, position them and sew them in. All that’s left to do is hem the skirt and wear it with pride! Get ready for lots of compliments!"
