Denim shorts decorated with lace ribbon

I love the shorts, they are much more convenient for me than short skirts and look great. This year I bought a new pair of denim shorts, so I decided it was time to upgrade the old ones.

You will need:
- lace ribbon (best buy cotton one, not synthetic, since denim shorts are made from cotton...)
- denim shorts
- scissors
- sewing machine
- needle and thread
- pins

Measure the width of the pant leg and cut the lace ribbon little longer.
Lace ribbon that I liked, was wide, so I had to cut it into two parts. The second half of the ribbon I I’ll use to upgrade the jeans.

Ends of the lace will be between the legs so that it will not be seen. Pin the ribbon and then baste it. 

Given that I cut the ribbon along the length I sewed first the top of the ribbon with zig-zag seam to prevent unraveling, then with usual seam I sewed closer to the fringe.

Updated denim shorts with lace decor are ready! All I needed – are a few minutes, and brand new summer item already in my wardrobe!

Jeans are next)
