Back by popular demand…another short DIY. Have you tried out my last two short DIYs? Find them here and here. The latest one I am bringing to you is the ever so darling, polka dot shorts! I was inspired by a pair of J.Crew polka shorts my sister has been wearing lately. They are so cute and it was her, who suggest I attempt the DIY, so thanks Brooke for this great DIY idea.
I found a darker colored wash of shorts, you can use really any shade. I think the darker the short the more the polka dots pop out. My sister’s were a lighter, chambray shade and those look good too.
Take you fabric paint and place a large amount on a flat service, like a magazine or lid. Next take the eraser side and dip into the pant and dot onto the shorts. I suggest dabbing the dots at least 1/2 to an inch apart. Also, make sure not to alternate how the dots are lined up.
Once the front side is complete, let dry for 4 hours, or for however long instructions on the fabric paint state. Once dry, finish the backside and let dry again for 4 hours.
And your done! It’s that easy! I folded mine up and paired it with chambray button up and a skinny belt.
