How To Properly Cut Your Jeans Into Shorts
Best fashion items never go out of style and denim shorts are right up there. The impressive thing about this DIY is that it’s stylish without any effort, also you don’t have to spend anything to get this look and the best part is that it gets you going for the summer.
Have ample pairs of denim you don’t really wear? Here's the best way to make use of them. Turning your old pair of denims to an awesome pair of shorts is not rocket science, but cutting them in the right way is very important. So here are the steps that will help you get the right look for the summer!!
All you need is:
An old pair of Denims
Lay your denims flat on a table and mark the length to where you want your shorts to be.
Draw a diagonal line for a more flattering fit
*This is a very important step because most of us draw a straight line which is a complete NO NO!
Do the same on the other leg of the denims by tracing it.
Now using fabric scissors cut each leg individually
Use a tweezer and pull out the edges.
To get a more worn out look use sandpaper in back and forth motion.
For a distressed look cut the horizontal slits half an inch apart and remove vertical threads with the tweezers.
Make sure to wash the shorts before you wear as this will fray the hem making it look more authentic !
Hope this gives you a whole new makeover out of your old pair of denims! Happy Summer!
