I've been salivating for a pair of crochet/lace front shorts for some time now. In fact, ever since I saw Ms. Dempsey's pair on November Grey several months ago (see original post here), I couldn't get them out of my head.
I loved these shorts so much that I almost didn't want to give them back! But eventually I had to, and while on the hunt for a pair of my own, I realized I could make some of my own, and even better, show you a simple, do-it-yourself item that's a summer must-have!!
Follow these easy steps to make your own! (So you don't have to resort to stealing your best friend's pair... that reminds me, she still has our red redesigned shorts...)
1: Find a thrifted pair of white or cream colored shorts. My selected pair was a two dollar find at the local thrift store in white linen. (Be aware, these were fairly dirty when I started working with them, but a quick toss in the laundry with color safe bleach left them sparkling)!
6: Finish by pressing your lace into place to flatten all edges. In this case, these shorts had a little button detail, and I removed the button, laid the lace beneath, and stitched it back in place after I had added my trim.
