    We'll put down some serious cash for a quality, plain, white T-shirt, and we'll definitely spend more than the average person on a sweatshirt (especially if they're as elaborate as these). For items we have no chance of creating ourselves, we'll happily save up to shell out.

    But if there's one item that pains us to pay retail for, it's a pair of cutoff shorts. Don't get us wrong — in our eyes, the combination of that perfect fray, that just-right angled hemline, and that perfectly long rise is like a sartorial symphony. But as seasoned crafters, we know that all that wonderfulness can be achieved with a sharp pair of scissors and a run through the spin cycle. Don't believe us? Check out our step-by-step DIYs that'll have you digging around your castoff pile for those ratty jeans.
