My friend Tyler posted this clever DIY video to my facebook wall a couple of weeks back. She's one of few of my friends that enjoys crafty stuff as much as I do. So she came over and we made an afternoon of scalloping some shorts. Mine were originally bootcut jeans, purchased from Goodwill for a few bucks.
I love this fresh take on summer cut-offs. So flirty and feminine.
A little bit of fray check on the ends helps to ensure these shorts don't get eaten up in the dryer. A straight stitch following the scallop pattern would be an even better way to keep fraying minimal.
Check out the video for more details on how to get a nice, even scallop. *Note* We used an air erasable fabric marker to trace the scallop design rather than pinning it on like she does in the video. I think that makes it a little bit easier.
Have a great weekend!
