Hey peeps! I am excited to reveal my DIY high-waist shorts that I created Tuesday. If you follow me on Instagram you saw the first peek. But today I am revealing how they turned out after the washer/dryer phase. Click here to see the short clip of how I went about creating them. I’m seriously addicted now. I’ve made another pair since then, and I’m on my third pair now. Ha! They are all old jeans so it’s all good! I will reveal the other pair too, because I’m attempting to make high-low ones. Anyways the jeans above I got from Goodwill for like $3.99. Oh and guess what?
The cashier gave me a discount “just because.” Love when that happens! Want to make your own DIY shorts? All you need is scissors and your imagination. Really! I just cut and tore in random spots. Then grabbed some white out, dotted the front, and put lines in the back. I also slashed the front ends of the shorts. Once I put them in the washer/dryer they unraveled, and became more distressed-looking. The washer/dryer just adds a whole, new element. Now all I need is a cute, cropped top to pair them with.
So fun! I’m a get some fabric-paint so I can go even further with designs next time. I have a ton of DIY shorts pinned on Pinterest. This is one of many Pinterest Projects. Check out more here and here. Have you done DIY shorts this summer?
