I love shorts. I have always been that psycho child that wears shorts to Christmas parties and on her trips to Canada. I love all shorts, the shorter the better. Jersey, spandex or denim, bleached, acid-wash or floral print, I love them all.. So the newest product of my shorts fetish is these beauties: High-waisted tie dye shorts. See how I made them after the jump.
Part un: the jeans
These started out as debatably The Ugliest Jeans Ever. Scrounged from the local Good Will, they were stretchy bell bottoms 3 inches too short that came up to my belly button. Despite their hideousness they were perfect for the project.
Part deux: the shorts
To get a good cut for my shorts, I laid a well-fitting pair of shorts on top of the jeans as a reference.
Use a ruler to draw a line parallel to the shorts.
Part trois: the dye
Et Voila! There you have it, my wonderful homemade tie dye shorts!
