Lace-trimmed jean shorts

Summer’s almost here, which means we’re ready to slip into our trusty denim cutoffs again. But this summer we couldn’t help but add a little DIY magic to our old jean shorts. So with a bit of lace and some simple sewing materials we whipped up these lace-trimmed shorts that we’ll be living in all summer long.


1. Cut a triangle out of your shorts that is roughly the shape of the lace. Make sure the triangle is centred on one of the side seams of the shorts.

2. Cut out a piece of lace in your desired size. You don’t have to use all of the trim – feel free to cut off the edges to get the right shape! Then pin the lace in place on top of the shorts.

3. Thread your needle, tie a knot at the end of the thread, and start sewing the lace to your shorts, pulling the needle in and out. Make sure you sew both the inner and outer edges. Once you have it all sewn down, tie a few knots where you finish, cut off the rest of the thread, and you’re all set. Now go show off your shorts!
