The basis for creativity

Before crop jeans, they need to be washed, dried and ironed. Decide on the desired length of future shorts. If you are not sure, make them a little longer. To cut short you will always have time, extending will be problematic.

Turn the jeans inside out, fold it exactly and mark cut lines. Add a couple of inches on the stock and carefully cut using sharp scissors.


Now use your fantasy. If you want to bend the bottom, making a neat edge, tuck the shorts and sew a double seam on a typewriter. To line it turned out a flat, bent edge can be pre-press. If you do not want to sew, make a small fringe. Ragged hem is also in fashion.

In order to completely change the color of the resulting shorts, they must be bleached. Spray bleach spray and leave for a few hours. Then wash again and rinse well. Paint for fabric can be purchased in sewing stores or departments for creativity. Dilute according to instructions and apply it on the shorts.

The Ombre effect can be achieved using several colors at the same time. Apply first one, then another. RUB the border, while the paint hadn't dried yet. It is better to use colors that are close in the spectrum: red-orange-yellow, blue-blue-purple, etc.

If you want shorts with a print, make a stencil out of heavy paper and use it to paint your design using acrylic paint or markers.

Trendy ripped shorts are made with a razor blade. Chaotically make a few cuts, and then with scissors, remove some threads to make a fringe. Using a pumice stone, you can create the effect of fading.

Trendy shorts with lace. Buy shop for sewing lengths of beautiful lace and sew it to the pocket or side seam. To facilitate the work, use the lace adhesive.

Another idea bright decor – decorated with fabric or ribbons back pockets of the shorts. Studs, spikes and rhinestones – they are also useful for decoration.
