DIY Distressed Jeans
Hello
everyone! I am sure you’ve noticed the new blog look which I am still working
on and editing it. HTML code is different with every new blog template and I am
trying to be patient when looking for every detail I want to change. By the end
of this week I am expecting to be done with it and I hope you will find it
easier to manage.
For
this blog post I have dug into a new area- DIY. I haven’t done any home fashion
project where I transformed old clothing into a new, wearable one. I had these
jeans for a few years and for some reason I had difficult time parting from it.
Instead I decided to transform them and what better trend was than boyfriend, distressed
jeans. It allowed me to change them easily where I didn’t need to worry about
precision.
If you decide to do something similar, here is what
you will need:
sandpaper, 
scissors or Stanley knife (scissors were
okay in my case because of thin jeans material) and 
thin wooden board. 
I
started off with cutting the jeans at the knee area twice and once below knee
on the other side. Once I was satisfied with the length of the cut, I took
sandpaper and grind the cut to achieve more distressed look. You don’t have to
stop here. You can add more cuts or even rip some parts for bigger effect. I
did a few holes under the pocket on one side and finished there. I stayed clear
of the back side of jeans but that is not a rule you have to follow. I just
didn’t want to risk a hole or a cut where my panties might show (hehe).
For
a final touch I rolled jeans up and sew it together. You don’t have to do this
if jeans fit perfectly but mine were always too big for me.
Have you ever tried anything similar- to change a piece
of clothing or maybe even jewellery?
