A few years back before leather shorts were on the rack at every department store, I was in search of. At the time the only leather shorts that I could find were designer (and several hundred dollars) so I opted to get a little creative. I found a pair of leather pants with pleats (circa 1980) at a local consignment shop for a steal. I transformed them into shorts by cutting off the legs using a pair of pinking shears. I 'hemmed' them using double sided tape and voila, lambskin leather shorts in all of 20 minutes.
