Truth be told, I don’t care much for daisies. I often lump them into the same category as carnations, which are the cantaloupe of flowers in my book. However, there is something quite sunny about a daisy. And who doesn’t love playing “He Loves Me Not” with the petals? Honestly, you have a better chance of getting an accurate read from a bud than boy these days. So when you combine daisies with denim, you’ve got a combination that even Catherine Bach would stamp her seal of approval on.
It 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.
