How To Tuesday: Who Wears Short Shorts?

DIY denim cut offsIt makes sense that this week’s episode is focused on creating the perfect “Daisy Duke” worthy denim cut offs.  A great pair of denim cut off shorts say “summer” like nothing else can.  They’re great for a casual day by the pool or running errands and can be dressed up with sexy heels and a silky top for a balmy night out on the town.  It may be tempting to just plop down the plastic and splurge on designer denim, but why not make yourself a custom (and less expensive) DIY version instead?  It’s much easier than you may think and you won’t be caught wearing the same ol’ same as everyone else.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Recycle!  This is a perfect way to utilize your old jeans that are just taking up space in your closet.
  • DO NOT cut the legs off straight across (this will lead to a very “cheeky” situation).
  • Leave an extra inch of fabric.  You can always go shorter!
  • Be creative.  Let your imagination run wild!  There are tons of different ways to embellish your shorts.
  • If you don’t have time to run ‘em through the wash, use a zester and seam ripper to get the fringe going.

    What a funny video. You crack me up with your practical “sustainable” cut-off demonstration.
