Maybe a Little Too Frugal – DIY Shorts

by

Due to my weight loss over this past year..and continued weight loss goal, I have to purchase some new summer clothes. I mentioned this is my last budget update. My shorts from last summer are literally falling off…so this is definitely a need and not a want at this point. Especially with the weather hitting the upper 80s this week.

So I thought I would be smart and frugal and make my own shorts…

Thrift store jeans for $3.50

Princess and I visited a local thrift store where I picked up two pairs of jeans for $3.50 each. I tried them on there to make sure they fit properly.

Then I cut them off at home….

Cut off jean shorts for the summer.

I thought it was the perfect plan…until I wore this pair for the first time. Within a few minutes, the already distressed fabric ripped all the way up my leg. So this pair was a utter and complete failure.

I’ve got one more pair to try, and it is more of a traditional blue jean fabric and not distressed, so I’m hoping it holds up better. I really do want some casual, cheap shorts to wear this summer!
