I love quick projects! I bookmarked this DIY scalloped short tutorial from Mandi at Making Nice In The Midwest like 3 years ago. I love it now just as much as then. It is great. And fast! However, I unfortunately never wear shorts. But with our recent unemployment I had to get creative with the kids summer clothes. So armed with the tutorial and a pair of jeans to make into jorts I made Lola a pair of scalloped shorts.
I fray-checked the bejeezus out of them! Even with that they frayed quite a bit in the wash. The look isn't bad so I just trim off the long pieces and let it be.
I used a gatorade cap for the scallop and it ended up being the perfect size.
Here's a little closer look. I love that they are a pair of casual cut offs that are spiced up. I have ended up liking them so much that I may have to make a pair for me!

Time Spent: Like an hour and a half- the fray check took forever!
