Hi everyone! I initially assembled this tutorial to share on my blog, but I stumbled upon this website and thought that maybe it would be a neat thing to share here too. I hope this is the right place to put it?
Sorry for the really long picture :O
I've always thought that flag shorts are really neat, and I had initially thought about making a pair by bleaching stars and stripes onto them, but after bleaching a pair of jeans and realizing the effort and time it requires I decided to go with stenciling instead. I used freezer paper and initally was worried that it would leak underneath because denim's more textured, but it came out pretty well I think. I made them for the 4th of July, but I feel like they're going to get a lot more wear than just that one day
