DIY Lace Pockets

Hey girls!  Are you ready for spring?  I certainly am.  And now, since the weather has begun to warm up a little, I wanted to spice up some of my old spring/summer clothes.  Since lace is so in right now, I thought, why not lace pockets? 
You're going to need:
-a pair of shorts, capris, or jeans
-sewing machine or needle and thread

First, pin the lace onto one of the back pockets.

Cut the lace out around the pocket.  Trim to fit the pocket and then repeat on the other pocket.

This part can be a bit tricky, so take your time.  Sew the lace onto the pocket about an 1/8 of an inch away from the edge.  DON'T sew the top part.  Just the sides and bottom.  Make sure you sew it to only the back parts of the shorts, not the front part.  Do this for the other pocket.  Now your done!

Enjoy your "new" shorts/capris/jeans!
