When I found this picture on Pinterest a few weeks ago I knew exactly what pair of jeans I was going to use to make myself a pair of these fabulously updated, recycled, repurposed summer shorts.
So when I was out running errands and found the perfect eyelet trim I came straight home to chop up those old jeans; ones than were worn in the heals, had faded and actually had a big rip along the inseam (the reason I was forced to stop wearing them in the first place).
I absolutely love the result!
I left the edge of the jeans unfinished over the lace in hopes that it might fray just slightly and add even more to the cuteness of them. I attached the lace with a simple zig zag stitch and literally put them on as soon as they were finished. It took a total of 1.5 yards of lace for the project just so you know incase you want to make some for yourself.
I've always been a big fan of lace in general and I think these are put together while simple with a bit of a country-style to them. Perfect for this girl!
Thanks Pinterest for another great find!
