diy crochet lace denim shorts

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Are you ready for summer? I'm not. But after seeing all of the new crochet lace ribbons at Creative Bag this week I'm actually looking forward to wearing shorts again ... shorts with lace details that is.

We added lace to a number of my daughter's shorts last year. It was super easy to do and  a great way to spend a few raining days at the cottage. We added lace in different widths to different areas of the shorts - pockets, hem, waist band. You can see in the photos above that we added a small band of lace to the front pockets and a larger band of lace to the hem. There is no right or wrong way to do this and if you need inspiration for where to place the lace just check out your favourite denim retailers for ideas.

I just bought some of the ivory crochet lace this week at Creative Bag. After I finish updating a pair of my denim shorts I am going to figure out how to make a clip using the lace for my youngest daughter's hair. She bought a beautiful lace dress from Anthropologie to wear to her grade 8 grad and I have noticed that she has been pinning hair styles with lace bow hair clips. If I come up with something worth sharing I'll show you what we end up doing at the end of the month.
