Primaloft shorts side fastenings on 09/14/2011 15:25:25 MDT Print View

Hi folks,

I have a pair of old Primlaoft Trousers that I am attempting to turn in to knee length shorts, as they have full side parting zips I am looking at some method to fasten them.

I have tried iron on Velcro with no success.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Stephen

Are you removing the zippers completely? If not, you could just add a small button/snap at the bottom of each leg -- simple and effective.

Hi,

I am removing the zippers completely as the zip runs from bottom to top (Army Patagonia Micro puffs) if it was the other way round I do a bodge job on the bottom of the zips.

I say 2 to 3 closures would be good as there is 1 press studs on top already.

Cheers,

Stephen
