On day four, I was excited to show the girls how to turn a T-shirt into cropped pants (or shorts). With this project, they learned how to make a casing and insert elastic. Those who finished early got to dig through my bag o’ fabric scraps & add some applique embellishment to their pants.
Basic tutorial for the Comfy T-shirt pants can be found HERE although I prefer an to cute an “all-in-one casing” with elastic instead of a separate waistband.
*Note: The “T-shirt Refashion camp” series will cover the projects I did with a cute group of 8-11 year old girls this past summer, but the projects are great for beginning sewers/refashioners of any age.
