DIY cutoffs in a snap

 
Lovin’ your winter jeans but not digging the worn-through knees or messy hem? Give your go-tos a warm weather makeover, just like Hunger Games star Isabelle Fuhrman. This Southern belle turned Cali cutie loves hanging in her DIY cutoffs. And with a li’l help from GL, you can, too!

 

What you’ll need:

An old pair of jeans that fit (preferably not ones with stretch)

Scissors

Safety pins

Pen or pencil

Ruler

 

What you’ll do:

1. Try on your jeans to decide just how long you want them.

 

2.  With your jeans still on, use safety pins to mark the length you want your shorts to be.

 

3. Take ‘em off, turn them inside out and lay them flat on a table.

 

4. Using a ruler and pen or pencil, draw a line along where you pinned your pants.

 

5. Now, it’s time to cut. Holding your scissors at a slight angle, cut along the line you drew, being careful not to cut the pockets. Remember, when in doubt, cut ‘em longer than you think you want them. You can always go back and make them shorter!

 

6. Toss your shorts into the wash to jumpstart the fraying process along the edges.

 

7. Rock ‘em!
