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 above—I haven’t worn short shorts in a couple decades. And Bermudas are easy. Even if you don’t cut the same length you can easily roll them to make up for your mistakes.
But if you like your denim shorts on the shorter side, precision is a little more important. So check out these denim DIYs for some ideas to keep your summer wardrobe fresh for the second half of summer.
