Here's a quick view of how it can be done.
|This pair of shorts had 4 layers of stitching. |
That's 4 layers of tedious stitch removal. Boo!
|Cut out the length you do not need. I removed 2".|
|Overlap the elastic and stitch with a zig zag stitch so it allows streching.|
|Replace the stitching. Done!|
The end result! Busy boys in fun parks makes it difficult to take pictures.
