15 DIY Shorts Tutorials To Make Before Summer

Spectacular Summer DIY Watermelon Shorts Step by Step Video Tutorial

It might only be spring right now, but summer is fast approaching and we couldn’t be more excited if we tried! Digging our shorts out each year and pairing them with cute, cool tops is one of our favourite parts of the season.

Being the avid DIY lovers we are, however, we’re sure it’ll come as no surprise to you that we’re also completely obsessed with altering and making our own new shorts each year. We love doing this because it gives us some new clothing for cheaper but also lets us upcycle some older things instead of throwing them away.

On top of that, making our own shorts each summer also lets us create and customize really unique things so that we’re the only ones around with a piece that!

Just in case you’re as interested in the idea of making your own shorts as we were, here are 15 of the best designs, tutorials, and ideas we’ve come across (and even tried already, in some cases) so far this season.

1. Simple DIY shorts with no zippers, elastics, or buttons

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you feeling up for a challenge so you’re quite intent on actually making your very own shorts from scratch this year, but you’re not the most in your sewing abilities when it comes to finicky things so you’d to keep it quite simple? In that case, we definitely think you should take a look at this easy pattern and tutorial from With Wendy! They show you how to make a pair in whatever wild fabric you please without having to work with zippers, elastics, or buttons.

2. Hand painted and stamped flag shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you the kind of patriotic person who adores making themed looks for Independence Day each summer, but you’re hoping to get particularly creative about it this year? Then we’d be willing to bet that these awesome hand painted and DIY stamped flag shorts outlined step by step on The Idea Room are exactly the kind of thing you’re looking for! We love the slightly messy aesthetic that makes them look stylishly worn and purposely altered, and your friends will love it too,

3. High waisted shorts with a matching bustier

VIEW IN GALLERY

Have you actually already tried making yourself a pair of simple DIY shorts from scratch but now you’re looking to take that idea one step further and challenge yourself even a little bit more? Then we think you’ll find your next step in this tutorial featured on Sew Aldo! They guide you through the process of creating a pair of perfectly fitting high waisted shorts and, as if that wasn’t awesome enough, they show you how to make a simple matching bustier to go with them as well! We love this idea so much that we literally might make a whole series of these little outfits in all different patterns and colours.

4. Asymmetrical fabric applique shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you have a pair of old denim shorts that you really enjoy the fit of but you can’t help but feel they’re perhaps a little too plain for what kind of styles you’re into right now? Then we’d to direct your attention to this fantastically simple way of jazzing your old shorts up with a simple piece of cut scrap fabric affixed an applique! Get the full instructions for recreating this cool look from Free People.

5. Geometric patterned bleach pen shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you intent on making some type of customized shorts for yourself this summer but you’re actually not really into the idea of sewing… at all? Well, lucky for all of us, not every DIY shorts idea out there requires a needle and thread.

We actually thought that this detailed bleach pen idea featured on Amanda K By The Bay was one of the coolest tutorials we’ve seen so far! They show you how to hand “draw” a neat geometric pattern in bleach that will stand out well against the dark, unbleached denim when you’re all done.

6. Sashiko stitched pockets

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you actually are interested in using a needle and thread, but you just had something a little different in mind than making your shorts from scratch because you’ve always loved embroidery? We couldn’t be more on the same page and we’re actually quite crazy about every kind of embroidery, from the most simple to the most elaborate. That’s probably why this very unique and totally neat looking Sashiko stitching tutorial from Free people caught our eye! We love the way they used simple off-white thread to add custom detail to their pockets.

7. DIY flowy pom pom shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

We’ve all had them- those awesome shorts that are wide legged, flowy, and slit in a way that’s somehow stylish and comfy all at once! We love wearing those all summer, but we’ll admit that we’ve got a few pairs of them that we’re convinced could look even cooler with a little bit of DIY customization. That’s where this super fun pom pom trim tutorial from Pacifically comes in to save the day! We’ll fully admit that we’ve actually used this guide a few times to make the same thing more than once but in different colour and pattern combinations.

8. Denim bow pockets

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you quite a big fan of the idea of adding more detail to your shorts, but you also have a quite, subtle sense of personal style so you’d it to be a little less overt and wild than some of the ideas we’ve shown you so far? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Sophie Rae created these adorable little denim bows and affixed the to the back pockets of their shorts! It’s simple, cute, and way easier to do than you might think.

9. Hand studded denim shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

If you’re going to take the time to customize a pair of shorts by hand, would you rather take a little more time and patience and really embellish them in an awesome way that will wow your friends? Then we think perhaps these hand studded denim shorts might be right up your alley! Get the full details in terms of what kinds of supplies you’ll need and how to make it happen from this great tutorial featured on Get Plenty.

10. Pleated dress shorts with a waist bow

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you still thinking about how cute the simple DIY high waisted shorts we showed you earlier on our list were but you just can’t help but feel they could use something a little extra, particularly around the top? In that case, we have a feeling you might actually prefer to make yourself these adorable dress shorts featured on Cotton and Curls because they also feature an equally cute waistband with a stylish bow! No need for belts to take away from your cute pattern and colour scheme when it’s built right in.

11. Ombre dip dyed shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

Perhaps you’d prefer a method of customizing your shorts that will actually let you get your hands a little bit dirtier than sewing requires? Okay, so you might not actually want to make a big mess where fabric dye is concerned, since you’ll never be able to clean that up, but we think you see where we’re going with that idea. Check out how Sugarlaws created a completely stunning brightly coloured ombre effect on a pair of old white (or light coloured) denim shorts by using dip-dying techniques!

12. Hand painted galaxy shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about hand painted DIY shorts but you’re not from the US so the flag idea for summer BBQs isn’t really applicable to you? Well, if you’re the kind of person who loves following trending pattern and textures just we do, then we have a feeling this fantastic (and shockingly fun and simple) hand painted galaxy shorts idea outlined Andrea’s Choice might be a little more along the lines of what you’re looking for! After all, who doesn’t love splattering paint for fashion?

13. Spectacular summer DIY watermelon shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are fabric dyes and paints actually your favourite things to work with when it comes to DIY clothing alterations but you’re still in the market for design ideas and hopefully scrolling on the off chance that we’ll have another idea for you? Well, we are pleased to announce that we actually do, and it’s an extra fun one! Check out how DIY n’ Crafts dip dyed in two different colours to get the base colours of these adorable watermelon shorts and then added seeds by hand with paints.

14. Custom graphic print shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

Are you very intrigued by the idea of adding your own pattern to your shorts in fabric paint but you’d actually prefer a neatly repeated pattern rather than something hand painted and irregular? Then we’re pretty sure stencilling is your best bet to get the effect you’re looking for! We’d suggest taking a look at how Melly Sews made these fantastic pattern shorts to learn how you can repeated your stencilled images cleanly and seamlessly.

15. Simple high waisted velour shorts

VIEW IN GALLERY

If you’re going to sew your own shorts from scratch, would you rather make something you can repeat easily and wear on a comfy lounge day? Then we think you’ll get along very well indeed with this simple tie-up velour shorts design outlined step by step on Kameelah Ali! This is another design that we’re hardly resisting making an entire series of; we can already picture ourselves running around in these all summer, in every colour we can possibly find the velour for!

Anthropologie Pattern Pop Tee (Refashion & Tutorial)

Spectacular Summer DIY Watermelon Shorts Step by Step Video Tutorial

Last week I saw this darling top from Anthropologie pinned on Pinterest, and then later that day I got a reader email requesting a tutorial for the very same shirt.

Now, I don’t normally oblige to these types of emails cause I already have a list of tutorial and refashion ideas a mile long (also, this), but this shirt was so cute. Plus it seemed the perfect top to wear on our Six Flags date last weekend. So…I obliged.

 

jeans: old navy // wedges: target (old)

Materials:

  • T-shirt (I used this men’s one from Target)
  • 3/4 yards of fabric (silk, jersey knit, polyester, or cotton all are fine)
  • matching thread

Since I bought a men’s shirt as the base of my shirt, the first few steps are to get it to fit. If you use a woman’s t-shirt that already has a scoop neck and fitted sleeves, you can skip to step ++++

Step 1. Cut off the neckline ribbing, cutting your neckline into a scoop if it was formerly a v-neck. Discard ribbing.

Next, cut off the sleeves, which you’ll need to keep. Then cut the sides of the shirt from hemline to armpit, and finally cut the back part of the shirt off about eight inches below the neckline.

Step 2. If you’re using a mens shirt, the shoulders are probably going to be too wide for you, so trim them down as much as needed. I made mine about 4 inches wide, as seen below.

Also, if the sleeve opening is too big, raise the shoulder by taking in a few inches on each shoulder, as seen below.

Step 3. Lastly, cut the hem to be slightly rounded, if desired. Now you’re ready to sew.

Step 4. Cut a long strip of fabric (wide enough to go across the entire width of the shirt and several inches longer than your front hem) and with right sides together, attach to the back of the shirt. Add a little pleat in the middle, if desired.

Here’s a little closeup of the pleat.

Step 5. (not pictured) With right sides together, sew up the sides of your shirt from hem to armpit. Trim the seam allowance and zigzag or serge the raw edge.  Step 6. Now it’s time to add the sleeves. If you’re using the sleeves from an oversized shirt, cut down to your desired size, as seen below. Then with right sides together, attach to the arm hole and sew around the arm hole with a straight stitch. Trim the seam allowance (zigzagging or serging the raw edge is optional since the t-shirt fabric won’t fray). Step 6. Now it’s time for the neckline. You can just fold the neckline over twice and sew around the entire neckline opening… cut a 2″ wide strip of fabric from the leftover back fabric and sew the ends together to make a circle. With right sides together, pin this circle of fabric to the neckline, stretching it to make it fit all the way around. 

After it’s attached, turn it right side out and iron the neckline flat, and then sew around the entire neckline with a wide straight stitch to hold the lining in place, as seen below.

Step 7. Next it’s time for the pocket. Cut a square your contrasting fabric and hem on all sides, then pin to your shirt and sew sew around all the sides except the top with a straight stitch.

Step 8. Cut the contrasting fabric in a scoop shape and then hem the entire shirt. Press all your seams and you’re done!

Amazing Fruit Nail Art Tutorials You Can DIY

Spectacular Summer DIY Watermelon Shorts Step by Step Video Tutorial

Fruit nail art designs never go style! Check out these amazing tutorials that you can do for your next manicure. They’re also great for summer!

41 Cool Fruit Nail Art Tutorials For Your Next Manicure

Fruit nail art designs are so cute and look so delicious! Ranging from the simplest designs to the most complex, I’m always assured that these nail designs can make my outfit look way better!

While watermelons, strawberries, and lemons are the most common designs, there are certainly a lot of other fruits that you can paint on your nails as well! I’ve compiled all the tutorials that you can work on your own nails.

Check out these fruit nail art tutorials that you can try on your own!

1. Mouth-Watering Watermelon Nail Art Tutorial Fun & Easy!

Watermelons are always a favorite tropical fruit to try during summer. Not only do they look scrumptious, they also smell and taste great! You only need to sponge on gradient colors of red, white and green to create a slice of the juicy fruit on your nails. Use a toothpick to draw black seeds on this delicious watermelon nail art!

2. Easy & Fun Crystal Watermelon Nails (Perfect for Summer!)

If you’re a fan of nail gems, then use a crystal in place of black polish for the seeds on your watermelon nails! This is a more feminine version of the watermelon nail art. To achieve this look, apply a glittery topcoat over the red and white gradient shades. Paste on three glitters near the bottom of the nail to make it sparkle some more.

3. Cute Fruit Nail Art Tutorial: Pineapple Express Edition

Get on the pineapple express with this super cute nail art! Instead of turning your entire nail into a pineapple, draw small versions of the fruit on a white base instead. You don’t have to worry about drawing the little cuties. All you’ll need is a thin striper and a steady hand to achieve the stamped result! 

4. Super Cute Cherry Nail Art Tutorial With Intricate Details

A scoop of ice cream would be incomplete without a juicy cherry on top. If you love these red delights me, try painting them on your nails! The thin lines of the stem, as well as highlights of the drawing, can be achieved by using toothpick or if you’ve got the equipment, a thin striping brush.

5. DIY Yummy Strawberry Nail Art Design

One of my favorite fruits will have to be strawberries! Dip them in chocolate or cream and I’d be perfect for dessert.

To achieve this delicious look, paint on some yellow “eyes” on a red base as well as a red leaf crown near your cuticles.

Apply a clear topcoat to keep it shiny before adding a brown block (to represent the chocolate) on the edge of your nails. With the help of a toothpick, draw lines on the brown part to give it that dipped in chocolate look.

6. Juicy Kiwi Fruit Nail Art Design On Short Nails

I’ve always found kiwis fascinating to look at as well as eat. The brown cover contrasts the rich green color inside, thus making it perfect for a manicure design! Plus if you love green hues, then this nail art is perfect for you!

7. You’ll Love This Colorful Pop Art Banana Nail Art Tutorial

Bananas may not look very ideal for a nail art but there are ways to make them interesting! These Andy Warhol-inspired bananas will definitely up your nail art game ten folds! You can create decals of the banana first and just paint them on your nails to create the look. Top off with a matte polish and you’re good to go!

8. Bite Into This Awesome Apple Nail Art Design

While shiny red apples make me drool, split apples can look interesting enough for me to use as a new nail art design. Painting on the apples might need a bit of creativity and dedication, but the ending result really is worth it.

9. Sparkling Grape Nail Art Tutorial You’ll Have To Try
