If you have a pair of high waisted pants, they would really look great with this project. This pair is perfect for a day at the mall or the beach with your friends. They will never go out of style and you will actually save some money making these. The type of lace you buy really matter since you want that scalloped lace edge.

This is such a great idea when your "little" girl starts growing up and up. Those last years jeans you paid so much for can have a whole new season and you save $$$ and she wears them!!!!!
