D.I.Y.D.S. shorts

D.I.Y.D.S = DO IT YOUR OWN DAMN SELF

Leather shorts, Suede shorts, Denim shorts etc...
After having recurrent dreams about short varieties, I took it as a sign that I needed all 3 types of shorts ASAP.

But with only £20 (enough money for half a short), I needed to come up with a creative way of turning half a short into three.

This meant a visit to my trusty friends Ebay and Cow Manchester (vintage shop).

But after a difficult day scouring the vintage shops of Manchester's Northern Quarter, I returned with £15 and a belly full of snacks.

Luckily, yet again, Ebay saved the day and the evening ended with the prospect of leather and suede trousers on the way and £7 leftover. Bargain!

Here is the equation for what happened next:





All that is left to do is stitch the hems on them and they are ready to wear. Totally cannot wait to wear either of these. The fit of the suede pair is to die for.


The plan is to try to recreate looks like these...

Wish me luck!
