Happy Friday, everyone! In honor of today’s 100-degree forecast, here’s Karen LePage from One Girl Circus with part 2 of the Little Bee tutorial: how to turn the yoga pants into shorts. Enjoy!
Here’s part 2 to our tutorial to complete your Little Bee summer outfit. Today we’ll alter the Yoga Pants into little shorts to show off those baby legs. Photos in the tutorial use Monaluna’s upcoming Meadow Knits.
Tutorial: transform the pants into shorts.
Determine the desired length of your shorts by measuring the inseam of a pair you already have.
Fold along this line. Here you can see how the darkened tracing will help you with the following steps.
For the hem allowance, measure 3/4″ from the folded edge and draw a line to mark.
Because the Little Bee Yoga Pants are flared and not straight, you will need to trace along the leg lines that you see through the folded page to mark the hem shape.
Open out the fold and cut along the hem edge you just marked.
Tip: you can use the grainline marking to align the print as you’re cutting out your new shorts.
Now you can proceed with the directions in your pattern to complete a new adorable pair of shorts.
