These soft and cozy crops were too long for me. Like I-went-for-a-walk-in-them-and-had-to-fold-them-up too long. So I took the scissors to them and cut them just around knee height.
What to do with the excess?
Make little boy shorts, of course! For my four year-old.
To make these, I measured the cut ends against his leg and determined the length was right but they would need an added waistband instead of a rolled-over one.
Then I cut the angled crotch seam and stitched the sides together, right sides together.
Next, I measured his waist to a snug fit against some 4-way stretch fabric (you could always do any fabric and add a piece of elastic inside), and cut it about 4" wide. I stitched it into a loop. Then I folded it over and put the right sides together around the waist. The seams both face up, towards where the body goes, when you use this method. Then I stitched it around once with a regular stitch and again with a wide zig zag (faux serge) next to the seam.
Viola! Cutest shorts ever and a pair of crops that I can go use for walking.
