Step 1: Go through your closet and find a pair of jeans you can part with.
Step 2: Look in the mirror, lean a little forward so you get the right angle. Decide what length you want on your shorts and use a pen to put a little mark right about where the cut should be.You should probably cut farther down than what feels natural. Mark off where you want the jeans cut off.
Step 3: Take your jeans off and lay them flat and even on the floor. Fold them once and reinforce the mark if you have to.
Step 4: Cut your jeans! Try to cut them in an angle so that you leave a little more fabric at the back. You need to make space for your butt! To fray the edges run a blade/knife over them.
Step 5: Throw them in the washing machine and your DONE!
