I love short shorts for summer. They’re fun, care-free and oh-so-comfy. But let’s be honest, I’m a grown woman and I think it’s safe to say I’ve out grown the “booty short.” So what’s a gal to do?! Add a mini flap back! Grab your scissors + an old pair of jeans– here we go!
I love the washed out denim look for shorts so I used an old pair of jeans that I bleached last year. I basically followed the design of a pair of Zara shorts I recently got (the one’s I instagrammed here). They have a small slit and the back is just a tad longer than the front (which means no funny bulging when you sit down, wooohooo!)
Mark where you’d like the front and where you’d like the back. Also mark the inside, drawing a line across both legs.
Fold + repeat.
Cut the front first.
Find your line on the back and cut straight through, meeting the line you out on the inside.
