One of our favorite parts of spring cleaning is sorting through our closets. There are always a few items a little worse for the wear that can be revamped with the help of some lace. And if you have come across some old pants – with holes in the knees or legs just a little too short – there is no need to toss them to the trash. Instead, re-purpose them into a stylish pair of shorts, embellished at the ends with a bit of lace.
Perfect for a day out on a boat, Friday happy hour with friends or a casual date night on your favorite restaurant’s outdoor patio, these shorts are sure to draw compliments. Best of all, the lace embellishment is easy to add on!
Depending on the style of your shorts and your personal preference, there are two ways to sew the lace on. You can add a chic layer of lace trim to the outside of the shorts or peekaboo trim (sewn on the inside and showing just a bit of lacy flair at the bottom.
Also great for shorts that are just a teeny bit too short, this pants revamp project will add a touch of elegance to your look when paired with a simple summer tee or tank.
