My daughter is in desperate need of shorts. It gets really hot here in Provo over summer (although it hasn't yet) and all she has are pants. I retrieved an old pair of women's jeans that someone was giving away for free because of tears around some seams. I took that and whipped up these two pairs of jeans.
What I looooove about making these for the kids is that I get the material for free, and I reuse a few seams from the original pair of jeans so that I don't have to work as hard! And I think they turn out pretty darn cute!
