DIY | High Waisted Shorts

Hello Do It Yourself people! Here's a DIY tutorial, to make a high waisted shorts. It's very easy and it doesn't take that much time. Let me know if you succeeded!

What you need:
- High waisted jeans
- Sciccors
- Tape measure
- Pins

1. Take an old high waisted jeans. You can buy them at vintage stores like Episode or Zipper, but i bought mine at a flea market, which is way cheaper.
2. First measure how long you want the shorts to be. It's better to put the jeans on, so you can see what's the right lenght for you. Mark that place with a pin.

3. Cut the jeans on the place you've chosen (you have to take it off first, of course...).

4. Don't take the risk and cut the shorts a little longer then you want them to be, you can always make it shorter later. After you cut the first leg, fold the jeans in two and cut the other leg. Then crop them, on the length you want them to be.
5. Check if the legs have the same lenght. I chose to keep it simple, but you can ad studs or frays if you like.

6. Put the shorts in the washing machine, so the unfinished edges will raffle.

7. I found these little name tags a while ago. It turned out that my mother stitched them in my clothes when i was little. Aren't they cute?
