DIY tutorial: lace shorts5:00 AM
So, finally here are my DIY lace denim shorts. I really wanted to do the tutorial before you asked me to, so here it is! You'll see, it's very, very easy to make them. So... Enjoy!
Supplies and things you'll need:
A pair of denim or jean shorts, whatever shade you prefer.
Lace (I used 2metres, but you just have to mesure the trouser leg to make it accord to yours)
Needle and yarn (or sewing machine)
Without cutting it, fix the lace into the shorts with pins. Start wherever you want to, I personally started with one of the back pockets, sewing it with short stitches, but you can sew it with the machine too. If you need help, just ask your mum or grandma, they'll know :)
When you finish sewing the pocket, cut the lace leaving a little margin, and then bend it to hide the final and make it look great.
You can put lace on both pockets, or just in one. You decide :)
Then go with the trouser legs. Repeat steps 1 and 2: without cutting, put the lace with pins, and then sew. I sewed all the lace by hand, I spent one entire day on it, but you can also use your sewing machine.
And then... Voilà!! Here you have your own DIY shorts with lace trim.
Please, if you make a pair don't be afraid to show me some pictures! I'd love to see them!! :D
Also, if you have some questions... Just ask me!
