D.I.Y. – shorts & vintage lace.

A while back I spotted a picture of some short that made my heart skip for a second. Most of you know by now that I love any d.i.y. project and so I headed to the fabric store right away to buy some vintage-inspired lace. If you follow my Facebook page, you already know that yesterday I got up pretty early and started making my version of those shorts. They aren’t even done yet (I have to head over to Sophie and her sewing machine today to finish them) but I already LOVE them!!! Don’t you think they’ll be perfect for the summer?

{still in progress but you get the idea :) how do you like them so far?}

    Ooooooooh – enough said! Too bad you don't have those in your etsy store. Would by them asap.
    I got the sewing machine (my grandma though I would need one when I moved out) but I am so crappy at everything which involves arts and crafts :/
    Love, S.
