I wanted to show you all a quick and easy way of turning high waisted jeans to shorts. It only took me 5 minutes to make these and they are perfect for the spring/summer. Here is a collage picture of what I posted on instagram. Follow the steps below to achieve this look.
First, grab a pair of high waisted jeans that fit you. The best vintage ones are the ones considered as "MOM" jeans. I got mine from a local thrift store for only $4.99.
Next, try them on and use a sharpie to mark how short you want it to be.
After that, start cutting away. I start from the outside and move in. You can use a ruler to help you out but for me I did it free hand.
Next, fold the cutted side over and start cutting the other side.
After that, then you are done!
I folded the edges but you can also use the scissors to snip at the thread to make them distressed. Afterwards, turn them inside out and put them in the washer. I am also going to add studs to these shorts. I just ordered some from ebay. If you would like to see that DIY please leave me a comment below. This is my first DIY post so I apologize if it wasn't clear. Feel free to ask me any questions and let me know if you think it would be better if I record my DIY. Stay tune for more DIY's. I already have two in the works =)
