As my last post showed, I get inspired by Ivy, so from the pictures of her I obviously need a denim shorts. As Cath in the City showed in her post; her friend had made her own Levi's shorts!
I thought I would save some money by doing the same with some good help from my mom :)
Here is what we did
| Go to Fretex, a flea market or ask your mom or dad for an old pair of jeans |
| Measure up how short you want them |
| Better to make them too long at first and then cut more afterwards |
| Create a line with a pen where you will cut |
| Double-check the legs are the same length |
| Cut em' off |
| They look like this |
| Pull out some threads to make it look worn |
| A cooler look |
| Since the trend right now is suuuper-short we cut them more |
| If you want to bleach them, take a piece of the jeans first to see how it will look |
I wanted to keep mine the color they were. You could also rip some holes or cut holes if you want a more rock look. The next step is to wash them if you want the threads to show even more, or to fold the pants upwards.
| My new Levi's shorts without spending any of my Cali savings |
