Ok so i said awhile ago that i was going to the VIRGINIA STATE THESPIAN CONFERENCE. I did and it was awesome, we all got a shirt. But my teacher just so happens to be the organizer of the whole thing. So after the conference we had to you know clean up and stuff ( not that it was a mess, just we had to like wrap up loose ends and stuff ya know?). So, like a week later , she remembered that there was this box, that had a whole bunch of conference shirts in it. And since we didn't give them to people we ( theater kids form my school) got to have them. There was this like big pile of , probably  like 30 of them just chillin there, and a sign over them that said FREE, take some. And i was like OMG, not a good idea to tell me to take free shirts. She said to take one, i took like..........seven......But anyways. Thats th situation. So i decided to make a pair of shorts out of one of them. I followed this tutorial i found of craftster.


Yeah, i know the link isn't craftster but craftster led me to it.
I also had a lot of issues on the way. It said to use at least a Large shirt, i held one of the 7 that i had ( 3 M - 4 XL) and i wa slike WHOA no way XL is way too big. BAD IDEA. When it said to use large , use at least large. I used a medium, and it was like uber-tight. And I didn't have much room for my um well, ya know,yeah. so i had to add a piece for that. And then it was too short, i mean like it didn't come up high enough on me , so i had to add a band at the top.Ok so now im rambling heres the pics.

This is one of the shirts.


Back: ( do you get it?) The conference was at Radford University( RU) but do you get what the whole thing says?

Now what i did.

The front of the shorts:

The back of them:

Drawstring detail: ( i used them hem as the drawstring)

What do ya think?
I love them, they are so comfy.

OMG! you MADE IT WORK???!?!?!
i tried doing that tutorial, but it doesn't go high enough at all. (i think it's cuz i used a v-neck shirt)
urs are great, i like how you did the x in the drawstring- looks SO pro.
