Maxwell Svetlik

Erica Worzel, Staff Writer

What you will need:

  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Measuring Tape
  • Studs
  • Men’s jeans in your size

How to:

  1. Cut across the pant leg to create shorts. Length can be to your liking
  2. Hold your shorts up to your waist. Mark exactly where you’d like your shorts to be cut
  3. Cut from your marking at an angle so that the leg is shorter at the outside of your shorts and longer in the middle
  4. Measure from top of shorts to bottom. Use this length on the opposite leg to make sure each leg is the same length
  5. Cut the second leg at an angle, matching up the middle seams
  6. Cuff the jeans if you’d like. If needed, add an extra stitch to hold the cuff
  7. Add your studs wherever you’d like.
