Sew top of jeans onto skirt material. I used an old pair of jeans & an old skirt. Its so much easier with an old skirt just make sure you get the hemline correct before you sew it together. (BW) perfect for those too short girls skirts too!
Add fabric to upcycle shorts. Place fabric over shorts, trace outline of pocket + or extra, cut, then fold or place in pocket and sew (you fold that extra fabric so it looks like a professional seam). Then add fabric to the bottom and your done!
