DIY: Scallop Shorts

I have these old pair of white shorts that was barely used, and I've also seen a lot of scallop shorts lately, I've been meaning to buy one, but I thought, hey, I could make one!

(BEFORE: LOUSY WHITE SHORTS)

Tools/Materials:
*A pair of shorts
*Scissors
*Pen and Cardboard for making the scallop pattern

Because the shorts were naturally cuffed, I cut the thread connecting the cuff. As you can see in the first  picture of this post, I already removed the cuff.



STEP 1:
Using the cardboard, pen, and scissor, make a scallop pattern. It depends on you on how big or how small the scallop should be.

STEP 2:
Trace the scallop pattern on the shorts.


STEP 3:
Using a zigzag stitch, sew the outline of the stitch and then cut the rest, leaving only the scallops.


VOILA! Scallop shorts :D I'd have to say, it turned out better than what I expected :D




Have a great day guys! :)

  2. Hi France,

    thanks a lot for your response to my scalloped leather shorts.

    And yours look sooo good too!

    Isn't it pretty easy to create them yourselfe? And you don't even have to pay anything :)
