DIY Distressed denim shorts


With the coming summer in my mind I decided to search for some denim shorts. But my boyfriend wanted to throw away an old pair of Levi's jeans, so I took them and turned them into shorts. They definitely fit in the range 'boyfriend' jeans, since they are quite loose. But hey, never complain when you've got yourself some free shorts! Just cut off both legs and use a seam ripper to loosen up the threads and fringe the seam. Then throw in the wash machine and you will see that the white threads will become more loose and the damage will look more natural.

  5. I love the way that you destroyed them ever so elegantly. it's like you added just the right amount of fringe to make it look like they were artistically destroyed. When I did mine, they fringed out everywhere.

    Props on cutting both sides the same length too. I did mine lopsided.
    made for an interesting look .
