DIY Lace trim shorts

  I used this method to turn some super short Hollister shorts [I got on sale a while back] into somewhat longer, trendier shorts :)
Difficulty: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
You'll need:
  • Shorts (old ones, new ones, thrifted ones)
  • about 2 yards of lace trim (check the trim/notions section of your local fabric store)
  • fabric glue or fabric glue sticks & glue gun or needle & thread
Here are the fabric hot glue sticks I got from JOANN.
Cut the lace trim to the size of the area of the shorts you are covering + 1 inch. I suggest starting with the side of the leg openings. Fold the lace trim under 1/3 of an inch and glue or sew that down.
Little by little, tack down the top of the trim , press down, and let dry.
Once you get close to the end, leave about an inch to turn under the lace and glue that down .
These are what the sides should look like!
Done! :)
