Before and After: High-Waisted Piped Shorts

Here's an idea for another pair of shorts to add to your summer wardrobe. Pipe them. Not only do they look cool but also have a sort of nautical vibe, perfect for the current season. 

I began with a pair of off-white capri's that I picked up at the thrift store for $2. After some bleaching, snipping and sewing I welcomed my new pair of shorts with open arms.

The inspiration for these shorts took place amidst last weeks episode of Jane By Design. I loved her shorts but decided to change the colors up a bit.

Hope everyone is having a great summer. Enjoy!
