DIY Runner lace shorts

Hello DIY‘ers, I guess that like me you are probably looking for ideas and inspiration for autumn DIY looks. Personally I love the pieces that look like lingerie with a nice thick sweater or cardigan for this season.

I decided to recycle my old satin pajama pants, turning them into these sports shorts with lace trimmings. Now they look like lingerie shorts, right? If you want to see more on sports shorts inpiración before deciding on a style, be sure to see my previous post with some ideas HERE.

    Si no tienes unos pantalones que puedan ir bien para este DIY, ¿cuál de tus DIY vendría mejor para empezar de cero, con sólo la tela?
