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)
Scissors
Needle and yarn (or sewing machine)
Pins

Step 1:
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 :)

Step 2:
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 :)

Step 3:
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.
