*D.I.Y : Floral pocket insert shorts*

Hello lovlies, I have a little D.I.Y for you today! For those that follow me on twitter or instagram you will have seen that my original plan was to repair a pair of Vintage Ralph Lauren shorts and cover one side of the front in floral material. Some how, i got distracted by the prettiness of the material that my lovely nan gave me, and did this little project instead. (I'm yet to finish the others, but i'll keep you updated). Now, just as a little *disclaimer, I had not intended on the material matching my top, I just simply happened to wear my pyjamas all day (because i'm lazy) and i then realised my top nearly matched! Anyway, I'll stop blabbering now ...

And there you have it... It's honestly sooo simple, and requires no stitching! You could use any material you like, but make sure you use strong glue! I love how pretty they look now, as it just gives them that little 'something' I'm actually thinking of starting youtube videos, what do you think? It would definitely make D.I.Y's a lot easier for you all to understand! :) I hope you enjoyed this girlies! x x x
