DIY: Studded distressed high-waisted denim shorts

Never thought a pair of shorts could ever have such a long name! This DIY could not be any simpler. I just bought a pair of high-waisted bell-bottom jeans from Savers for $7, hacked it off into shorts, continuously scratched my fabric scissors on each pant leg, washed it to create more distress, and then added some studs I got from for about $6 (that’s including shipping). I really want to make another pair that’s not distressed because to be honest I’m getting a little tired of that trend…plus it looks a lot more crisp without all the snags and rags. Perhaps next summer if it’s still on trend? The PNW isn’t much of a place for shorts….
