Ten DIY Denim Shorts To Try This Summer

My first DIY project ever, was to cut off my jeans into shorts. Granted, I cut them off bermuda style a la Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing (see above). That was pretty much a no brainer. The only thing is to get the legs cut the same length, which for me was much easier said than done. None-the-less, it was pretty easy to hide my mistakes by rolling my  jean shorts.

Today, denim shorts are, well shorter. And the precision and perfection can make the difference between summer chic and summer streak. I usually just buy my denim shorts, but that doesn’t stop me from being amazed by what’s out there. So if you’re crafty and even if you’re not, these denim DIYs are pretty awesome.
