DIY Patching Denim With Lace

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.

  1. Thanks! I have a pair of jeans that is meant to look ripped, but one tear is too big… this will be a great patch idea!
