I ripped my pants, it was sad.  Cry

And it was a liiiiiiiittle bit too high up for any sort of modesty. So what's a girl to do? It'd be a shame to throw them out, finding a new pair that fits is such a chore. Enter the lace ruffle, mohahahaha! A snip here, a zigzag there and presto!

(Sorry about the crappy cell phone picture folks, it's the only working camera I have atm.  Undecided )

Now I should have used a thread that matched the pants better and lined up the lace more carefully, but the store is too far away and I know I'll just forget if I leave the project lying around. I'm happy, the shorts are awesome and that's what matters. ^^ Much love, y'all!

Cute!  And a nice save!  I have shorts like this (a little too short for decency...) I wonder if I have any cute lace? Thanks for the inspiration. 

Though I totally understand about do-now-or-it'll-sit-there, because most likely I won't get to them before...October? Perfect shorts weather! Tongue

I'm a medium aged procrastinator, with a room full of craft supplies! 

I've got a wist and a pinterest: http://www.wists.com/cute_anarchy

Oh gosh yes, the shorts season here is limited to about... An afternoon in July if it's a leap year, the moon phase is right and it's not too windy.  Tongue Gotta be prepared! Just make sure the lace is a little stretchy to accomodate sitting. This is a cotton lace, but it's loose enough that it stretches a wee bit when I move.
