DIY: Layered Vintage Style Lace Shorts

Hey guys,

Today i made these pretty white lace shorts from a scrap of fabric left over from a skirt i cut up. I'll post how the skirt turned out when i get to making it.

 The fabric alone look a bit like an under garment so i decided to add lace over it.
 This size was perfect to fit under the existing lace thrill.
 I just folded it back and pinned as close to the seam as possible then stitched and cut off any excess so when the lace folds down you can't see the stitches.

 Then following a pattern i cut out the pieces, i pinned the sides together leaving the crotch.
as this is sewn later, once folded both the crotch pieces meet and can be sewn.
Now fold over a hem big enough for your elastic creating a tunnel and stitch leaving an opening , you can decide here whether to tuck your lace in or cut it off i cut mine off to give a raw edge around the waist. Then thread through the elastic cut to size and stitch the elastic together. Then you want to enclose it and stitch along the hem you created.
