Scalloped Shorts DIY

Hi! I've had this idea in my head for quite some time and now I've finally accomploshed it! I love accomplishing goals you set for yourself.. it feels so good... doesn't it?.
1. choose a pair of trousers that you don't particularly mind cutting up! 2. measure out how long you want your shorts to be compared to your legs (make sure they are the same length) and cut notches to help if needed. Cut off at desired length 3. pin front and back together and use fabric scissors to scallop (or your own design) the new bottoms (the hem) of your shorts! I used an anti-fray glue at the end to stop shredding and keep things looking tidy. You can also hand stitch the bottoms for a more home made look! Enjoy! 
love, polly :)
