Do It Yourself! Distressed shorts tutorial by Nica Ubas

After a long hiatus, I am back with something I’ve been dying to do ever since!
So without anymore long introduction, let’s get this DIY distressed shorts tutorial started.

note: I apologize for my nails. Please just ignore it HAHA I have this bad habit of waiting for the nail polish to chip off before I get them done. Also, i’m trying to make the captions as simple and as understandable as my brain can handle.

Ready?

Things you will need: Scissors, blade or cutter, needle, and of course your choice of shorts or jeans you wish to cut and distress.

The picture above is actually my shorts which is too long so i cut it off ย and showed the white threads for more vintage-y look. If you wanna do the same thing, I will show you how..

Choose or get your reference shorts so you’ll know how long you’ll cut. Make sure to do it slowly and don’t cut directly. That way you’ll avoid cutting it too short. (POKPOK shorts aren’t cool especially when your butt is showing)

If you want to show those white threads like mine, all you need to do is run the scissors to the right and vice versa.

NOTE: do NOT cut! just run it.

Don’t worry if you don’t get many white threads. If you’ll wash your shorts eventually it will all come out.

Next thing is to figure out where to rip your shorts. Be sure to have it above the pocket or else your underwear or legs will show when you wear it.

Using the cutter or blade, cut a line on where you have decided to rip.

Turn your shorts and locate the tear.

Using the needle, pull off the white threads depending on how much you want.

When you’ve pulled a lot of white threads, the blue threads will thicken so you have to cut it off or you may leave an inch of it before ripping another part of the shorts

taaaahdaaaah! that’s what I meant when I said you can leave some of the blue threads

I made 3! ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t want to distress the other one more because I intend to put on studs (which I will of course write a different post about it)

I hope you guys enjoyed! ๐Ÿ™‚ and if you wanna try it out, lemme know how it goes! ๐Ÿ™‚

BISOUS,

Sheer Top + Corsets = Look To Snag

Here’s your daily dose of fashion inspiration.
Sheer tops and corsets, wear it separately or together would still make a great look.
My favorite is the Stella Mccartney creation above (last photo). It would probably look good too if it’s a dress.
