See this shirt? It fits funny, not flattering in the least. The elastic bunches up higher than the waist should when you move around leaving you lookingodd.

S0 I converted it to a pair of shorts, using the elastic as the top, and the bottom edges as is so I didn't have to sew more hems.


(More on how I did it and the tutorial I used on my blog entry http://www.microfemme.com/2009/06/converting-a-shirt-to-pj-shorts/  )

I intended them to be Pj's, but have been wearing them around the house when I am working too.  Quite comfy!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

This really isn't a post about crafting if you're not telling us anything about it HERE on Craftster.

It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to craft.

Just trying to not put too many giant pictures on Craftster- it takes forever for me to load a page as is.  Sorry, there is really not much more to it than cutting and sewing the hem down anyways.  They are nice and comfy though, I have been wearing them while working!
