Step 1: hit up "mom jean heaven" aka "goodwill"
Step 2: cut jeans to desired length
Step 3: add slits where extra distressing is desired
Step 4: soak shorts in bucket of pure bleach til just before desired color
Step 5: wash, dry and rock em out!
I created my very own for $1! Sure beats the $60 and $70 online. Added bonus: you can design length and distressing to your liking!!
