How to Add a Button Tab to Cuffed Shorts Tutorial

Yesterday, I showed you the adorable Hattie Button-Up Tank and Sailor Shorts I made using patterns from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop (affiliate link).

As promised, I am going to show you today how you can add a button tab to any pair of cuffed shorts. It's super simple, so let's get started!

Cut off any extra length from the raw edge of the tab and then finish the edge by either serging or using a zigzag stitch.

There you have it!  What a fun little detail to add to your shorts, plus it helps to keep those cuffs from unrolling!  I already have plans to make more of these great Sailor Shorts from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shops! (affiliate link)

And I just might have to buy the latest Thrifty Thursday $4 pattern from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop:  the Pier 49 Convertible Pants!  (affiliate link)

  1. Awesome tut!! I've tried doing tabs on my own and I think I over complicated it. Thanks!
