Before I Forget

Top: Glamorous (c/o), Shorts: Topshop (sale/DIY), Belt: Primark 

For FOREVER I have wanted a decent pair of denim shorts, but have never found a pair that really suited me. So I thought I'd go ahead and make my own pair! I spotted these pink acid wash long shorts in the Topshop sale during a late night peruse, LOVED the colour and their long line as it meant I could make them into high waisted shorts! I ended up cutting the length several times, unsure of how daring I was willing to be! But I think I'm happy with my final decision, and to finish them off I frayed the edges simply using a sharp bread knife (please be careful if you use this method yourself)!  

I paired the shorts with my beloved floral skull vest from Glamorous and this tan woven belt, and I'm thinking its quite a good festival look!!

When looking for inspiration for creating my DIY shorts I came across so many great ideas, so I thought I'd share them with you guys! 


Have you attempted your own DIY shorts? I'd love to know what designs you've put together, would love some more inspiration!

  2. I did some DIY shorts, I put pyramid studs on the pockets, pointy studs down the side and more pyramid studs along the rim. It was really hard to make at first but I got used to it and they are the coolest shorts ever! Shame I didn't take any pictures I could've posted about it! Damn! You look gorg btw! :) x
