Topshop DIY 2...

Photo from the Topshop website.

A little while ago I wrote a post all about a Topshop DIY shorts post that I'll link it here. And I thought I should upload the next 'installment'.

So ages ago I added these shorts to my basket, after deciding I needed these in my life. But once again I looked at the price: £34, and decided against it. I was questioning, are they really worth it? "They're just shorts with a bit of cloth".

   Which gave me the idea for this DIY.....

All you need is:

  • Denim Shorts/ jeans too cut into shorts.
  • Crochet fabric- available at any sewing shop/haberdashery
  • Fabric glue
  • Needle and white thread
  • Scissors
  • Pins
To start off quite simply, just place the fabric over one side of the shorts.
Pin the crochet fabric too the shorts.
Trim the excess around the edges.
Remove the pins and glue to the shorts- ensuring its lined up correctly.
Then take your needle and thread and sew the fabric to the denim.

To make these shorts more unique, you could dip dye the shorts/crochet fabric. Or tie dye the fabric or distress the shorts.

If you do try these, be sure too let me know. As I would be interested as too how they turn out.
