Cut-off Jeans

This is such a simple idea that I am almost a bit embarrassed to write a post about it, but I was so chuffed with my discovery about how to make my girls some shorts that I am going to share anyway.

My children, like everybody’s children, grow way too quickly, and at the beginning of this summer they looked ridiculous in their winter jeans. I noticed how fashionable, at least in Paris, the cut-off jeans look was. So I just cut off everyone’s jeans and turned them into cut-off shorts and bermudas. I even did some little turn ups on Vivi’s shorts as she did not like the frayed look!

It’s funny, clothes are so cheap often nowadays that I forget to up and recycle items. I remember my mom was always turning dresses into skirts, trousers into shorts, t-shirts into rags! I do like being thrifty!

Cut off shorts are a rite of passage (and of summer!) in the states. So refreshing to breathe new life into something- these photosmake me happy!
