My first DIY !

In this world you can never run out of firsts, there's just so much! You can try something new or you can start something new. Well here's another first, my very first DIY (do it yourself)! I usually dig through the piles and piles in my mum's old closet, digging for treasure "harhar". All the items scream VINTAGE, mostly clothes from the 90s and early 2000s. I saw a pair of light blue ankle length pants from bossini and asked my mum if I could have them.I used a pencil to mark the length and the snipped away! For the distressed area I used a metal ruler and just went back and forth until you see the threads coming out and just continue to reach the level of distress that you wish to have. Haha!







Not so bad for a first DIY right? What do you think? Well, I hope you like it!

  5. Hi dear thanks for visiting our blog: http://futurereflectionsk.blogspot.com We followed yours as well.
    The DIY shorts are awesome, me and my sister do the exact same thing with old jeans and pants, they end up all shorts :D I like them better and sometimes they look and fit better than if you bought brand new shorts. Love your look overall and the hat is cute:)
