A few weeks ago, our friend Katie showed up wearing the cutest lace trimmed shorts. We were impressed to discover that not only did she DIY them, she made them using boxer shorts! We immediately raced to Target for white boxer shorts and the fabric store for a variety of pretty white lace trims. Honestly, this DIY is so simple and perfect for summer!

You’ll need:

  • men’s or boy’s white boxer shorts
  • 2 yards of lace trim
  • a pair of scissors
  • pins
  • a sewing machine or needle and thread

Pin the lace trim along the inside hem of the shorts, starting at the seam of the inner leg. If the trim has a decorative top edge, it can be stitched to the outside of the boxer. Trim away any excess. Sew or hand stitch the lace to the boxers. Sewing over the original hem gives it a nice and clean look.

And you’re done! Can you believe it’s that easy? The possibilities are endless – you can try using silk boxers or black lace on black boxers!

Wear them as is or layered under skirts. Have fun!
