Hey guys long-time no DIY? It’s been a while since I did one of these but I’m back with something fun and easy to do! The star of the S/S 2014 shows are baggy worn in jeans. The more holes the better and this goes for all jean styles. Below I showed two examples, Jelly was the “boyfriend jean” (my personal favorite) and I sported the “skinny jean”. Kids can be up to date on trends without breaking bank right?
1. All you need are your jeans, box cuter, sandpaper (the higher the grit the better, I used P60).
2. Start by cutting horizontal lines that are maybe 2-3 centimeters apart.
3. The more slits you cut the bigger the patch of rips. You can cut them as long as you like, I did them pretty short because I didn’t want her jeans to look like a woman’s pair, I wanted to cut enough to make them cute vs. grown & sexy.
4. You almost want to file your jeans like you would file a nail and don’t be afraid to really scrub at them! This gives them the effect of looking worn in and tattered. I did this over the slits I cut out as well knees, and back pockets.
Then all that’s left is to wash them twice and throw them in the dryer! Here’s the end result . . .
Jelly’s Nail Color – YSL Rose Scabiosa
I rolled up the legs for a more relaxed comfy look, she was such a good sport!
I took my slits just above both knees and some random rips here and there on my skinny’s.
Hope this was helpful and also a great way to re-use jeans you’ve got sitting in the back of your closets, even your little ones!
