In my pile of clothes, I re-found these ] white khakis. I've never worn white pants, or white shorts; the main: because of my wonderful creative messes I make in all aspects of life (my hubby laughs at such an understatement).
But really, I was warned that once I had a child that I'd be washing my clothes as much as the little one's. Basically here's the math:
Me (wonderful creative mess) + a little one (a boy who loves dirt and rocks) = AVOID white or light color clothing.
Problem: I love white.
Solution = what the heck, wear it anyway and wash it after every wearing (oh and use oxyclean)
Seriously, if I get lucky I can wear them a second day without washing.
They are totally worth it.
Here's what I did (sorry I forgot to take pictures again)
- Cut longer than desired length
- hem shorts as you would normally
- then sew on desired fabric on the under part of shorts on top of hem
- roll up shorts to show off the lovely fabric
And here is my 'partner in messy crime'; he's recently learned how to give kisses on command.
Albeit, they are wide mouth and fully of saliva, but I love every one.
