How to Add Lace Trim to Shorts

See my full disclosure policy here.

This is a quick project that makes a plain pair of shorts a little prettier. I found these on clearance last year for $1, so naturally I grabbed a pair in every color. These navy ones were a little boring, but I had some border lace that I used to dress them up in a hurry.

You'll need a pair of shorts, some border lace and your machine or even a needle and thread.

Measure enough lace to fit around the hem of the shorts and stitch into a loop with right sides together.

Position the lace where you want it and stitch along the border of the lace with a zig zag stitch. You may need to adjust the width of your stitch to make sure it remains within the border.

Repeat for the other side and that's it!

I am thinking that maybe adding a bit of material, that you could add a cuff to the pant leg and maybe make them a bit longer too.

This was of great help to me. I'm making a long robe and am adding the lace around the sleeves and hem. Thanks for your help
