Cut-Off Shorts

How to make your own high-waisted jeans is easier than you think and can be done in 10 minutes or less! I love my high waisted jeans and I wear them all year round.

I bought a pair of light-wash high waisted Levi jeans from a thrift store for $3, came home and cut them immediately!

Here’s three easy steps to cut your own:

1) Put on your jeans and mark where you want to cut them, and make a small slit. Make the slit about 1-2 inches longer than you think you need.

2) Then take off the jeans and finish cutting the pant leg off, continuing the slit you previously cut, around the jeans. You can fold the pants in half and cut to make sure both legs are the same length.

3) Put the shorts back on and re-evaluate the length if necessary. Cuff or fray the ends of the shorts.

4) Ta Da! Your shorts are complete! Now you can stud, dye, or patch your shorts however you like!
