DIY Fashion: Butterfly Patch Denim Shorts

Finally, getting a bit more time to create some content since the TV show has wrapped. So many great things in store.

These shorts are inspired by the Valentino shorts which are everywhere, they retail for about $2000 SGD.

When I was in Perth, I spent a lot of time with Mum and her nursing home is next door to a textile shop and a thriftstore. I bought a pair of second hand denim cut offs for $4 and these lovely butterfly patches which were only $2 each.

I had to unpick the hem of the shorts because they were a little short, then I ironed them down (after washing them, of course).

I then ironed the patches on (which took 20 minutes).

That’s it! They are ready to wear!
