DIY smuggler shorts

Velvet and lace pocket shorts

This summer the internet has been taken over by over-priced 2nd hand short-shorts with a piece of fabric added on one side. I decided to make my own!
As I have a mild obsession with anything lace and velvet, I decided these would be the perfect fabrics to use for my pockets! I have a heap of scrap velvet let over from a op shop dress that I over eagerly took to with scissors.

A tip for first timers – ensure velvet sides are folded under so it doesn’t fray, personally I think lace looks better with a rough edge.

This is so easy to do and a great way to save your pennies!
