One of the best ways to save money is by "re-doing" items you already have and making them work for you. I have been seeing jean and lace shorts everywhere lately. And I love them. Lucky me I had some "spare" shorts that were too tight around my leg, and I knew the perfect way to fix that.
A few months ago my Mother In Law gave me a box full of lace and other stuff. I found these lace pieces, and knew they would be perfect. I cut up the size of my shorts on the outside seam on each side, all the way up to right under the top of the lace piece.
I pined the lace in place, separating the seams a little to stretch the leg out so it would fit better. Next I sewed them on.
I just went around the edges with white thread. After sewn in, and I checked to make sure the legs fit good, I cut out the "extra" jean material.
Here they are on.
I like to party at these awesome places.
