Louise's homemade Bermuda shorts look great

She said: "These black ones are quite a loose-fitted denim and they're a couple of sizes bigger than what I normally wear. I still want to create a Bermuda style but I'm going to take them up a few inches above the knee."

Captioning the second video, she wrote: "Cut a skinny pair in the blue and a loose fitted pair like these black ones! I've taken these ones up a bit more above the knee but still keeping the Bermuda style."
