Do you have a pair of denims that you are bored of wearing over and over again and yet they are in pretty good condition to get completely discarded? I do have a pair and after all these days I finally decided to give them a makeover. In summer when I have to think denim all I can think of are cute denim shorts to beat the heat. So I chose to do a DIY out of my old jeans along with some laces for a comfortable pair of summer denim shorts! Besides, it’s been long since I shared on of my DIY fashion posts with you all. So, here I am with a super simple, quick and easy DIY Fashion tip to transform your old pair of denims into something cute and trendy! Read on and find out how!
So here are what you’ll need:
A pair of old denims
Lace in any color or patttern of your choice
Basic stitching equipments
A pair of scissors, of course!
Step 1 : Measure a length that suits you and cut the legs of your jeans as shown below.
Step 2 : You may want to fold the hems and stitch them the way I did or let the raw edges fray. This is how my denim shorts look like before I start adding some lace details to them.
Step 3 : Now cut bits of lace fabric and stitch them onto the shorts. You can play with your imagination and creativity here and think of a variety of ways to create patterns out of the lace. I hand-stitched the lace as it’s a bit difficult to patch it to a ready garment, but if you are good in machine stitching, do try using the skill to your advantage. Cut any extra laces and threads if needed.
I stitched patches of lace to the back pockets and the front panel, but like I mentioned before, you can use them which ever way you like!
Your cute DIY lace denim shorts are ready! Go ahead and style them the way you like! 🙂 I will soon do a post showing how I am going to wear mine.
Waiting to hear your thoughts on this DIY Fashion idea and looking forward to see your version of denim lace shorts in case you plan to try out this DIY tip yourself.
