Using an old pair of jeans I've had since the beginning of time that still fit (luckily!) and studs I bought online, it was a fun late night project. If you want a DIY tutorial, please request. But honestly, I just put the pants on, drew some lines, and cute some strips in the shorts. And don't forget to throw them in the washer dryer. I find that pants with no stretch give a way nice distressed denim look.
