I cut these pants of mine into shorts a while back, dyed them, and hand distressed them. I was hoping they'd come out more gold and brown, but they came out pretty yellow green instead. However, I still love them! The old pants had zipper details at the bottom, so I transferred those onto the shorts, which I love. However, I cannot close them really, and wearing them come summer should be an interesting problem (they're pretty racy without leggings). The studs I bought on Etsy and added here and there.
