Here's a quick and easy DIY perfect for summer I mentioned in my last post: distressed jean shorts!
I scored these great jeans for $4.99 and they fit perfectly! I began by cutting them a little longer than I wanted (nothing is worse than cutting a great pair of jeans too short) and cut slightly shorter and shorter until they were the perfect length on me. Make sure to cut with the pockets out and at a slight angle inwards towards the crotch area so that the sides are a little shorter and the crotch area is a little longer. I'm giggling each time I type crotch by the way. Place something sturdy (I used cardboard) in the leg and go to town with a knife (safely of course). You can cut a few slits with scissors and scrape the rest with the knife. The key at the end is to throw them into the washing machine after you've made all of your cuts! Here's how my shorts turned out!
Dave and Max wanted to help with the DIY'ing too. Boyfriends are wonderful when they help with distressing jeans. Puppies aren't as useful. Max decided he'd take a nap right on top of our project.
Let me know if you found this useful! I'd love to hear how your shorts turn out! Thanks as always for reading!
P.S. You ladies were so sweet (and funny) in your comments in my last post regarding my legs! I'm flattered and would love to share a workout post in the future when I've got some more free time!
