4 Revamp Jeans to Shorts Ideas

Sara from SaraBeautyCorner shows us 4 revamp jeans to shorts ideas, in this video tutorial. She’s come up with some really great styles and she clearly talks us through how to do each one.

I’m also really impressed with the amount of effort that went into filming and editing this video.  Apparently it took them 10 days to film this, in more than 10 different locations, and they ended up with 17 hours of filmed material!
