Daisy Duke shorts..D.I.Y. tutorial

There is nothing I like better than a pair of Daisy Dukes!
Here is a quick tutorial on sewing lace to the bottom of cutoffs. My daughter fell in  love with some denim cutoffs at F21. Fortunately (for me) they didn't have her size... So a quick trip to Joanne's for some lace and we converted a pair of denim cutoffs into some darling ( and a bit longer) shorts. This made both of us happy!

Step one: buy new or new to you denim shorts, can be cutoff already or just cut and fray at desired length. (might need to ask dad what the desired length is!) 

Step two: pin lace around the WRONG side or inside of shorts. you will need about 1- 1 1/2 yards of lace.

Step three: sew lace all the way around each leg taking care to join the piece or seam at the inside leg.  Turn right side out.. Really this is about a 20 minute project

step four: Enjoy the squeals of delight from your teenager....okay a mom can dream right?!

Come see me here at a link party!
