I started by turning down the shorts to give them a bit more length.
I then cut into the shorts to give them a rough edge as I want the edge to look raw and distressed.
I then wanted to bleach the shorts at the bottom to give them a new lease of life and also in shops like Topshop and River Island there are currently alot of bleached denim looks. I made a bleach solution with one part bleach and three parts water and used a sponge to put it onto the shorts. Always wear gloves when doing this.
I then wanted to add something more so I decided to add some fabric glitter, the one I use is Pebeo Fabric Glitter which you can find from most art stores. I got a stiff paint brush and painted glitter on the back and front of my shorts.
Lastly I used a wire brush to distress the edge of the shorts to give them a frayed look.
So there you go! A new pair of shorts without the cost.
