sewing project: pants to shorts

Last month I took some free time to tackle some of my sewing projects.  Not the fun ones where I start sewing from scratch but clothing repairs and tops that need to be taken in and such.  In that pile I found a couple pairs of pants for Avery that I wanted to turn into shorts.  This was a fun quick project.
One of the best parts about turning pants into shorts is I get to decide the length.  If I wanted to buy a knee-length pair of shorts for Avery I'd have to look in the boy's section.  Now I can just sew the length I want.
We're getting a lot of use out of these shorts while the weather is still warm but I can't say I'm not looking forward to Autumn and the Holidays!
