Lace Trimmed Shorts

25 Jun

I saw this idea on Pinterest the other day and it reminded me that I have a box full of lace trim that’s collecting dust! I love repurposing old jeans… remember this skirt? I took an old pair of jeans, grabbed the lace trim and went to work!

This pair of jeans have seen better days… I measured the length and cut!

Next, I matched up the sides and cut the other leg!

Lastly, pin and sew on the lace trim. I used a straight stitch on the top because of the ribbon trim. I used a zig zag stitch on the bottom that also helps with fraying.

I cut my shorts a little longer so that I can wear them to work. I guess that’s one of the perks of my job.
