DIY Lace Trim Shorts (A Tutorial)

I saw these white lace shorts on Honestly WTF and loved them so much but wanted to make more of an everyday pair. To make mine I took a pair of white jean shorts I bought for our beach trip ($19 from Target) and some plain white crochet lace trim:

I turned the shorts inside out and starting at the inseam stitched the trim all the way around the bottom edge:

I cut the trim so it overlapped the place where I started and stitched back and forth a few times:

I even added some lace to the back pocket flaps:

A boring white pair of jean shorts are now dainty and pretty!

Much cuter and dressier than the ragged pair they were before! It also added about an inch to the super shortness of them.

    I want you to know that I did this to some white shorts of mine about 8 days ago. Great minds, right? I’ve already worn them more since I’ve added the lace than I did the two years I had them before.

    Just bought a huge bag of scrap lace remnants from Hobby Lobby for cheap. Will have to make some for me. Thx.

    I am soo inspired! Alot of shorts these days are just too short for my taste. This just might solve my problem and add a lot of extra cuteness.

    If only we all had those legs to show off! Those shorts look really cute on you, but on me would be a crime!
    Love all your ideas Ashley!
