The Best Way to Cut Jeans into Shorts
What better way to declare the start of summer? The key to cutting off jeans is not to go too short too soon.
Slip on the jeans and mark the desired length on one leg with chalk. Take them off, fold the leg at the mark, and iron the fold, says Caroline Calvin, creative director of Levis. Then cut just under the crease with fabric scissors. Lay the short jean leg on top of the other side and cut to evenly match. Repeat as needed to get the length you want. Ninety-degree days? Bring em on!
