trimmed cut-offs DIY

IMG_1875This is a really great/simple way to spruce up cut-offs or just regular shorts in a matter of minutes. Plus, you can pretty much use whatever you want for the trim. So, you know, BONUS!

Supplies:
shorts
sewing needle or machine
trim (cording, ribbon, rick rack, spare fabric, lace, etc…)
coordinating thread
pins
scissors

Start measuring out how much trim you’ll need for each leg (you can just eyeball it).
Pin to edge of leg opening all the way around.
Stitch loosely in place and cut excess trim.IMG_1877

That’s it! Pretty easy huh? I tossed mine in the wash after stitching to make sure everything stayed in place, and to promote fraying. Enjoy your new fancy pants, Fancy Pants! xo
