Denim shorts are some of the most popular clothing items, especially in the hot season. But if you can't find a design that you really like or you want a pair that is original and no one else has it, than you can create your own denim shorts with the help of some really easy DIY projects. To create the perfect pair of denim shorts you will need a lot of imagination and a little handiness. Before starting, find your favorite design and make sure you have all the supplies you need.
You can use a lot of things to transform a simple, boring pair of shorts into a fabulous one. For example, you can add little pieces of lace that you can sew on the shorts. This is very simple and in the end you will have a pair of delicate denim shorts to wear with a chic summer blouse. For a more edgy look, you can add studs. After you have put them in place, go over them with an iron. Torn denim shorts are also very trendy and instead of buying them, you can create a pair for yourself. So what else you can do? You can paint them in one or many colors, using even the ombre effect. If you like prints, use a stencil and clothing dye. Bows are so cute! How about using them for your back pockets? All you need to do is sew them on. If you want an original look, add a piece of fabric that has a nice print.
So if you are ready to create your own denim shorts, here are a few tips that you should consider.
1. Buy a pair of bigger jeans: it will look more flattering and they are easier to work with. Also the 80's are back in the fashion, so check out the vintage stores for a pair like this. If you have an old pair of jeans in your closet, don't hesitate to give them a new life.
2. Measure the inseam and use chalk to mark the place you want to cut: before cutting your jeans remember that measurements are very important. For a nice fit you must leave 3” at the inseam and make a line using chalk so you will know exactly where to cut your jeans. For a nice fray, use pinking shears, that are perfect for so many other projects.
3. Wash, wear and enjoy: after you are satisfy with your work, wash the shorts and take them for a walk in the park!
