I've been loving the in season studded denim shorts over the past month or two but just can't fork out around 30£ for them, so I decided to go ahead and make them myself. I mean, how hard can it really be?!
I got slightly carried away with the studding, but hey.. it looks great!

As I don't own a pair of jeans that don't fit me (if only I knew how to do this before I cleared out my wardrobe!), I woke up one morning and had a nice stroll into town with my mum and scouted through several charity shops where I found old jeans and denim shorts each under £3.00  (HOOORAH! what a bargain!). I already had some random studs lying around the house so I decided to use them but you can purchase them on ebay in all colours and shapes.

What you will need;
- Old jeans or denim shorts
- Fabric scissors
- Studs of your choice

Step one: Try your jeans on and decide how short you want them to be. Mark a line and using your scissors cut along your line

Step two: Decide where you want to put your studs and how many you will be using

Step three: Using the prongs on the studs, push them through the denim and on the inside of the shorts, close over the prongs to secure them onto the jeans.

Step four: Carry on putting your studs on your shorts, if you want the bottom of  your shorts to look frayed get your scissors and on the inside pull out the bits of material

AND VOILA! Your shorts are now personally customised for under £5!

What do you think of these studded denim shorts? Are there any items of clothing you own that you have customised?

  1. nice pants ;)
    i followed, can you follow me back?

  2. I don't understand why people go into places like Topshop and spend lots of money on these type of shorts when it's so much cheaper to do it yourself... I really like the front of them, it's making me want to do some now haha xx
