Sunday morning I texted my best friend "about to make my own jean shorts - send help." Which started a back and forth debate about the much offending jort (aka jean shorts). You see, the two of us have little love for the frayed, cutoff, perpetual wedgie, distressed denim shorts that seem to multiply like rabbits when the weather turns warm. But a pair of nicely cuffed shorts with an appropriate inseam... I was beginning to see their appeal. So on a rainy, dreary Sunday out of infinite boredom I took a pair of sewing shears to an old pair of jeans. And proceeded to wear them all day.
I paired my newly shortened jeans with one of my many striped tops and a bit of statement jewelry just for fun. What's the point in diving off the deep end and wearing jorts if you can't have a bit of fun accessorizing. I know, I'm a rebel. Should you need a step by step method for shearing off the legs of an old pair of jeans, try this technique.
