This was a project from last month that I completed. I really, really love the outcome of them! They originally started as a high-waisted jeans that I purchased from the thrift store. From there, I cut off the legs to the desired length, folded up the bottom, and sewed so that the fold would not come undone (shorts coming unfolded is a huge pet peeve of mine). The last step was to stud them! I decided to only stud one side. Just a warning before tediously studding for hours, don't forget to put in a good movie! I was watching Disney channel re-runs which definitely put a damper on my two hours of straight studding!
