Design it yourself: Lace Shorts

Time for another DIY by the-tip-nerds! This is one of my favorites. Why you ask? If you're one of my dolls by now you should know about my obsession with lace. Pair lace with some old shorts and you have a fabulous summer look.
DIY: Lace Shorts

Here's how to make these cute shorts!!
So you'll need:
A pair of old shorts
Some lace
Thread (preferablly white or the same colour as the shorts)
Fabric chalk/ Pencil (nothing permanent)

O1. Mark out the shape you want to cut out on the shorts, then using the scissors cut the shape out of the shorts. 

O2. Cut the lace out it should be bigger than the cut out part but not to big, also cut it on the line of the shorts... do you get me? it needs to be as short as the shorts are!

O3. Thread the needle (pretty obvious) and sew around the edges with the lace under the short (pretty obvious too) Tada! You have some super cute shorts! You could jazz them up using other types of lace like pink, blue ect!
