Remember those cute diy polka-dot jeans you made this winter. Well, when you decide to cut them off and make them into jorts this summer don’t toss the extra denim fabric. These polka-dots were too cute not to turn them into something new.
Jeans + Cut off into shorts = Jorts
A headband made from jorts
Let me preface that I am no stranger to jorts. When I was a little girl, Dirty Dancing was my favorite movie. I sat on my sofa and observed Jennifer Grey wearing jorts while rehearsing the “I had the time of my life” dance. That afternoon I made my first pair of jorts. I didn’t become a great dancer, but I fell in love with jorts. After cutting the legs off my jeans I decided that I wanted to reuse the denim fabric. Why not? I cut the denim in strips. With my sewing machine, I attached the strips of denim together into a long strand. I folded “right sides” together and sewed along the edges. The denim is like a tube of fabric. I reversed the denim tube and had my headband. I left the ends unfinished because and like jorts… the headband will get better with age.
Proof of my love of jorts
I couple years ago my husband I attended a Jorts themed Birthday Party. We might have been a little too excited to attend.
