I tend to live in cutoffs during the summer months, and I always find myself embellishing them or patching them in various ways to make them unique (I have proof: see my DIY Studded Cutoffs, DIY Updated Cutoffs, Floral Patch Cutoffs, and American Flag Cutoffs). This year I was inspired by our July catalog and its boy-meets-girl styling. I love the idea of incorporating girl elements into a boyish pair of shorts through patching with lace. It’s a great way to repair your shorts while simultaneously making them look even cuter!
What you need: Cutoff shorts, a needle and thread, and lace doilies and trim.
I loved how this piece of lace looked hanging from the bottom of the shorts. It seems like it was made to go there!
I used a small piece of trim to place underneath a hole on the back pocket as well.
I love the unexpectedness of this little bit of lace peeking out! It adds such a fun, girly element to the shorts.
