Last post I told you how I went to Goodwill on a quest to fill my desire for colored shorts. I came home with a pair of bright blue/aqua mom jeans that I turned into cuffed shorts and these red shorts. They are No Boundaries brand (Walmart?). I tried them on at the Goodwill and liked the fit and the color, but thought they were a bit short. Thus, I got them with the mindset of adding another inch or so with some lace.
Here is a step by step of how I turned these "booty" shorts into much more modest lace trimmed shorts.
Turn your shorts inside out.
Find your lace. I had this eyelet lace in my stash. Lay your lace on top of your shorts, making sure that the right amount is showing from the front view, and start pinning.
Then take your shorts to your machine and sew along the hem that already exists. Don't forget to match your thread!
Start trimming away, being careful not to cut your shorts.
And here they are all trimmed! Now, for the finishing touch, hand stitch the lace ends to each other, so that they don't flap around. Again, with matching thread.
So cute! I think the lace adds some length and a feminine touch, don't you?
Time for you to make your own!
