DIY Summer Shorts
As summer approaches, so does the warm weather which brings along spring fashion. A way to be stylish, eco-friendly, and save money this season is to make your own jean shorts with some simple materials lying around your house.
- Fabric scissors
- Exacto Knife
Find some old jeans that are not too tight near the thighs. This is so that the shorts will not be uncomfortable to wear.
Take the jeans and place a pair of good shorts on top to get a good length. Then trace a line where the shorts end with the chalk.
Cut the shorts. I cut just a little below the line just in case I need to redo anything. I then tried them on to see if they fit.
I chose to make the shorts a little more stylish by distressing them. I started by using the chalk and mapping out where I want the rips. Then I cut slits into the jeans with an exacto knife and a magazine inside the pant leg. This is so the knife will not cut all the way through the pants. Next I took the tweezers and pulled out the threads.
Fold the ends of the shorts and iron them to make the ends look cleaner.
Put them on and show off your new cute shorts.
I hope this cheap and eco-friendly DIY can make this spring and summer season more fashionable.
