Quick Fix

I don't have a sewing machine and the one time I used it I went to a friend's house and horribly executed a supposedly simple task. I don't think I have the coordination skills to use a sewing machine properly!

So last night I decided to take these shorts in a little by hand. See the before??? What a disaster!! They just made my short legs look even shorter. But now I love how it fits - it looks cleaner in my opinion.

  5. Thanks guys! I took them in an inch on the inside. It fits a bit tight but they are a stretchy fabric so I think it will be okay.

  12. very simple but chic as well. i lack the patience of hemming things by hand unless ABSOLUTELY necessary. And lol @ your comment on my page. and yes, i can tie a scarf. i do it more in the winter but not very often...(and no offense taken :-)
