Sewing and converting long pants into shorts.

These are my current thoughts at the moment. Taking all the long pants that I made this past winter, and converting them into shorts.
  • Putting ruffles on the ends of the capri/shorts.
  • Adding a contrasting fabric band on the end of the capri/shorts.
But how to I convert these pants into shorts, that won't have that dreaded "baby butt crack"?

Are the pants that currently have that tendency not recyclable?

Do I need to add a fabric pant to the top of the pants?

What are your thoughts?
