I bought these shorts at TOPSHOP last week with my striped ones. ( I have so many pairs of shorts but i justify that by wearing them all year around !)
So i really liked this pale red/coral colour. They were super comfy as the material stretches ^^.
I wanted to put some lace trimming on these shorts because they look really short on me.
But I didn’t want to accidentally ruin a brand new pair of shorts so instead I decided to make lace trim undershorts that I could wear under anything ^^ (similar to the ones in this post but they were too tight and too thick/warm to wear underneath in the HK summer)
So here is my mini tutorial:
tip: measure the trimming around your legs first! or else get elasticated lace trimming. my tights were patterned but any tights/stockings will do.
^ they add a little something to plain shorts =]
^ my face looks funny here o.O
It just so happened this stripy top was an exact colour match to my shorts =]. The over knee socks are actually cut off from the original tights so no material was wasted = double DIY ^_^
p.p.s. I am going to Hong Kong in 3 days !
can’t wait =)
