New shorts from old jeans

What can be done in ten minutes? Not so much. For example, to watch a TV commercial with a piece of news, do not rush to drink coffee, take a shower in a hurry, assemble a tiny machine from Lego, light a fire from ready-made materials, change a punched car wheel on the spare tire ... And you can also sew new shorts from old trousers ! Thus, “kill several birds with one stone” in one fell swoop: to dispose of an unnecessary, but dear to you thing, to purchase a stylish new clothes for free, to save time searching for the right piece of clothing in stores. The main thing is that new shorts will be perfectly matched to your size.
Materials for work:
• Old denim pants - 1 pc .;
• Sewing machine, scissors, scrap pins.
Stages of work:
The first stage: we cut off old trousers.
Make a measurement of the required length of the future shorts on one leg (just bent over). The recommended length of denim shorts: just below the knee (or quite short, three to four centimeters below the line of the buttocks).

Gently fold both trousers along the side seam and transfer the measuring line of the required length of the shorts to the second leg. We cut the unnecessary length, departing two to three centimeters from the measurement line down the trouser leg (this is a seam allowance).

Similarly, cut the second leg.

The second stage: form the bottom hem of parts.
In order to avoid shedding the edges of the fabric, we form a hem. To do this, along the perimeter of the whole of the trousers, we bend the fabric in about one centimeter. A prerequisite for proper bending is the alignment of the side seams of the main part and the hem (otherwise, after filing, the bottom will be wavy).

We make another bend inward one and a half centimeters wide. It turns out double podgibka, crumbling edge of the fabric remains deep inside.

We split the pins with a bend. In order to avoid the unevenness of bending or mixing the seam lines, you can make a basting stitch with large stitches.

Stage Three: stitch the hem of the pant legs.
The sewing machine foot on the fabric is set in such a way that its movement goes along the very edge of the bend.

We make a seam all the way into a thick side decorative seam (in this place, the thickness is triple and the needle of the machine cannot cope with it).

Raise the sewing machine foot and unfold the fabric at ninety degrees. We make several stitches (so that the needle does not reach the parallel edge of the bend by half a centimeter).

Again, unfold the fabric at ninety degrees. We set the presser foot so that it moves on the other edge of the bend.

Sew the bend all the way into the thick side decorative seam from the back. We repeat all the turns and make a line to the place from which the bend was started.
