Just to the End of Summer

Labor Day has passed and to many that means fall has begun. Yet, here in Iowa it is still in the upper 80’s! We will be wearing our summer wardrobes for a few weeks more.

I found the bottom edge of a pair of David’s shorts was worn out. I didn’t want to replace them this late in the year and finding his size was difficult. (I married a big man!)

I folded the edge up about one-fourth of an inch and pinned them. I did not rip out the hem.

I then stitched below the original stitching one-fourth of an inch. (I planned on adding another line of stitching, but I ran out of gray thread!)

I ended up with a “new” edge on a pair of shorts that was only one-fourth of an inch shorter. I did not intend for these to last another year…just to the end of the season.
