30 Days of DIY: Day 10 – Lace Jean Shorts

This post may contain affiliate or referral links. Read more about this in our disclosure policy.


Welcome to 30 Days of DIY! These posts will be on, well, DIY (do it yourself) projects. I will be focusing on DIYs to save money, reuse things and make expensive stuff for less!

We all have our favorite shorts and pants that fit great. Well one thing leads to another and they just don’t fit anymore! Here is a great DIY way to make your favorite shorts fit again! (or just spice up an old pair!)


Take your shorts and cute a slit up the side seem. Doesn’t matter how high (or not so high) it’s up to you (though let’s not go slutty high here!)


Then take your lace and sew in along the seam and voila! You have a hot pair of shorts just like the ones above!

Danielle, The Frugal Navy Wife

Hey everyone, I'm Danielle, I am the owner of The Frugal Navy Wife and Roadschooling with The Frugal Navy Wife and Author of "How to Have Your Dream Wedding for Under $1,500".

I am a Wife, mom to 4 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
