Currently Listening To: “King for a Day” -Pierce the Veil
Remember when I said I bought two pairs of pants to cut up? Well, I finally got around to actually hemming the other pair and I ended up doing more shit to it. So, I started this last night and just finished it this morning. I think they came out pretty well. So, onto the diy!
Also, (I don’t know why I haven’t been doing this) I’m going to go through and make all my DIY posts like my make-up posts. I have no idea why I never thought of actually doing that, but I’m doing it now! Heh..
I have no idea why that one picture is derping out on me. But just turn your devices upside down and it’ll all be okay.
- Shorts. Or a pair of pants to cut into shorts.
- Sewing supplies (needle, thread, scissors…)
- Scissors… just to be clear.
- Hot glue…. (I would recommend just sewing everything, but I took a small shortcut because I was tired and have difficulties sewing stiff ribbon.
1). (If you already have shorts, ignore this) Measure how long you want your shorts, cut them, and hem the bottom.
2). Lay out your lace across the part you want all lace-y and pin it down (before cutting it). I used safety pins, because it allows me to move the shorts inside and out without stabbing myself or losing pins.
3). Cut a little bit bigger than the shape of your shorts, so that you can hem the lace while you sew it on. I just folded the little bit extra under itself and hemmed it while also sewing it on. (Yes, everything was hand sewn…)
4). I did both sides of the one leg, but it really doesn’t matter what all you lace up. Personal preferences.
5). Next I took some ribbon and glued it in the small gap between the front and back lace panels. I normally would have sewn it, but I was lazy and just hot glued it down. I really hate to do that kind of shortcut, but if it doesn’t work out I can always fix it up properly.
6). To make the ribbon look nicer, I made a little ribbon bow and glued it onto the end of the ribbon.
7). Remember the detachable chains I made for the last pair? I think it would look cool to have those hanging off the bottom of these shorts. Like a chandelier. I didn’t get to photographing those, I was too lazy to get them off the other pair.
Ta da! They look awesome. Now laugh at my attempt to photograph these things while wearing them. ><
Thigh high socks make everything better… (I seriously love these and my fishnet pair way too much)
I really like how they came out. I just hope the glue holds up to my activities.
What do y’all think? I think I’m all DIY-ed out for now. Unless I get more ideas. But for now, nothing more. xD
Let me know what diy’s y’all have been doing lately. I may end up getting more ideas from that… Hmm. >.<
Anyway, bye guys!
