Last week, we shared 16 tutorials to hack an existing pattern from our blog archives. We had too many tutorials to fit into one post, though, so we are sharing more posts this week.
Today’s installment involves tutorials to alter pants, shorts and skirts. We show you how to add pockets, linings, drawstrings and interesting hem details.
