New Shorts?-D-I-Y then!!

Thanks dear Pamcasso (squareoldsoul.blogspot.com) and Kate (makedostyle.blogspot.com). They have both drawn up lists of essential wardrobe basics and as I only have one other pair of short shorts, I have been inspired to accomplish number 21 on Pamcasso's list -denim shorts.

As I had in excess of ten pairs of jeans, I thought I would do a touch of D-I-Y (do it yourself) and make a pair of denim shorts from a pair of Levi's 501's that I didn't wear much.

New shorts made by moi!!

We are going to Eastbourne (a beach resort on the south coast of England) in August, so these will be ideal to wear on the beach-my days of wearing short shorts on the street are long gone-ha ha!! They will also do for wearing in the garden on hot days when we have the kids paddling pool out or when we have a barbeque. Thanks again for your style inspiration, Pamcasso!!



I do this all of the time. Its fun and leaves you with a unique pair that "just anyone" cannot purchase! ;) Great job!!

Thanks a lot, fashion chalet!! Yes, I'll be pleased to wear them when its a bit more sunnier!!

Neve said...

Sharon S said...

Hi fashionpuppy-thanks so much!! Our British weather has been fairly cold, damp, rainy and no sun for about 2 weeks now :-(

Have a nice day too:-)

Shes Dressing Up said...

Great DIY idea! I need some denim shorts and may do the same!

Tori said...

You've inspired me to diy some very weird denim shorts i have.

It would be lovely to trade links. Cheers.

Mónica said...

they look great. I have done it last summer, at first I feel a bit bad about cutting them, but then, it was ok.

Alice @Ogni cosa bella è viola said...

So clever Sharon! I need too a pair of jeans shorts Do-it-yourself.


Nothing said...

Perfect! Don't you love making new things out of clothes you never wear.

Winnie said...

I should do this more often!

It's cherry season? I'll have to grab my umbrella and head on over to the shops to buy some! Yum!

WendyB said...

Trust me, my days of short shorts anywhere but the beach are long over too :-)

Pamcasso said...

Danz said...

Sharon S said...

Hi Kate-thanks so much!!

Hi mey-A lot of girls wear these shorts with black tights underneath!!

Hi Nic-yes, saves buying a pair!!

Hi pamela-yes, go for it!! Have swapped links too!

Hi atelier-yes, I know what you mean-it takes me time to get used to the newer style too!!

Hi alice-yes, you should go for it!!

Hi fashionable obsessions-I most probably wouldn't have worn them as jeans anymore-so at least I've got my shorts now!

Hi winnie! I'm sure cherries are in now-hope so!!

Hi wendy-LOL-yes, totally agree!!

Hi Kamel-thanks for your lovely comments!

Hi pamcasso-you should go for it-it knocks another one off your list!!

Hi danz-thanks so much!!

Hi aizat.cinta.goddess-Yes, this style is always in fashion!!

BlossomClothing said...

oooh these are cute
nice job!x

Sally said...

I have been wanting to do this for a while but I am scared to ruin my jeans and end up with 2 unwearable things! You seem to have managed it very well, so I may give it a go. x

Cate said...

hi sharon!
i have a pair of self-made denim shorts too, and..well i don't quite dare to wear them on the street either. their high time was last summer, when i was going jogging with my best friend in the countryside ^^

Ida said...

The shorts are so lovely, dearest Sharon! Now you can't wait for August to come, right?:)) Have a great day!

The shorts look really nice and comfortable :).

Vain and Vapid said...

Nice job, I see these shorts in all the shops right now and I keep wondering why people don't just do this themselves. Who doesn't have a pair of old jeans around the house?

Unknown said...

Sharon S said...

Hi kirsty-thanks very much!!

Hi wendy may-I would suggest not cutting too short and then cutting higher if needed-you can't do this the other way round!!

Hi cate-yep, I love the shorts but wouldn't wear them everywhere!! At least you have age on your side!!

Hi Ida-I really can't wait to have some beautiful sunny weather and then hitting the beach in August! Hope you are having a good day too!

Hi rohit-thank you! Yes, we can exchange links

Hi nadine-thanks a lot!!

Hi vain and vapid-yes, you're quite right-it certainly saves you money!!

Fashion Is Poison said...

Sharon S said...

Hi fashion is poison-yes, that is the only trouble-maybe next time start at just above the knee and go up very gradually!
