Scalloped can be done, circled in chalk rounded contourRemains trim on the plannedOriginal idea
Tip! Girls, and who said that the line of cut must be smooth? Looks much more elegant shaped bottom in the form of waves. When you drew a straight line, take something round, for example, the cap or a small Cup, apply it on the chosen path and tracing, creating a wavy edge. After cropping you can bend it and hem it, or leave unchanged.
The easiest way to handle the free edge is to bend it and stitch on the sewing machine, manually or go with a serger on the edge of the trousers. For convenience zautyuzhte the line at which the plan to pave the seam, can also make basting stitches with a needle with colorful thread, which will pull in the end, only scribble on the back of it.
If the goal is to make comfortable clothes, not fashion outfit, you just need to trim the legs
It is possible to do even without visible seams. In stores for the needle sold by a special climbing frame, tape with adhesive edge, the adhesive does not dissolve in water and keeps no worse than the strong bonds. The edge of the leg is first processed by the serger, then laid on top of the seam overlaps climbing frame, the edge are folded and glued together.

- in the washing machine;manually.
In the first case it is necessary to wash the product with a large number of turns, loose thread will thin and you will get the desired result. In the end only astrocyte the edge of the cloth, to prevent further restrainest in the process of socks.
Take the trousersIntended line of cutDecorate to taste

On the front of the shorts can be cut open with a razor blade or box cutter, the edges of the resulting holes will also be issued in the form of the fringe.
Important! In the process of wearing the slit will increase in size, so make them not very large. When creating incisions definitely puts in the clothes a piece of plywood or thick cardboard to cut through both panels.

To do this, take one part of white and dilute it in two parts with clean running water. Soak the thing in the resulting solution for 2 hours, then remove, rinse and dry. If the fabric is not Sibelius repeat the process. If you do not completely dip the product, then you can achieve the transition from white to a basic hue.
