What you need:

  • Denim cutoffs or jean shorts
  • 2 feet of lace or crochet trim
  • Pins
  • A needle and white thread OR fabric glue OR transfer bonding tape
  • Scissors


  1. Cut a triangle out of the sides of your shorts directly on the seam.
  2. Cut out a piece of that fits your triangle with an overlap of about ½".
  3. Now pin the lace in place on top of the denim where the triangle cut-out is.
  4. Thread your needle and carefully hand sew or glue your lace to your shorts.

TIP: You can do this with fabric glue as well, but it lasts longer with needle and thread.
