Believe it or not, when thrifting to make your own shorts its way better to look in the mens section. I used to look for women’s levi’s and realized they weren’t high waisted enough for me and did not come in many different sizes. Mens fit perfectly and there are always so many of them around! This tip has saved me countless hours of searching in thrift stores and I have made many of my own shorts because of this!
There are many youtube tutorials on how to cut your own jeans into shorts and that was exactly how I learned to do mine. Make sure not to go too short because I messed up my first pair because of that mistake. It is always better to be patient and cut them properly. Hopefully you find your perfect pair of shorts~~~
