DIY Lace Shorts
We forgot to mention that you can make a pair of awesome lace shorts yourself! Instructions are below.
-Pair of denim cutoffs
-Two pieces of triangular-shaped lace or a doily (You can go to a fabric store or order this online)
-Needle and thread
Cut the lace along the edges to create a rough outline of a triangle. Be sure to cut off the straight edge exterior lining. You want to be left with the cute curved design.
Line up the lace to the side seam and bottom of the shorts. Use your pins to secure it in place.
Cut out all of the short fabric visible from behind the lace. Leave about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch of fabric on the inside. There shouldn’t be an excess.
Thread your needle with 12 inches of white thread. Tie a know to secure it.
Start at the seam and sew the lace into the seam of the shorts. Use as straight of a stitch as possible. Do this all around the shorts, you want the lace to be secure.
Knot the thread and repeat the beginning steps on the other shorts leg.
Find a cute top, some fabulous sandals and strut your stuff!
