What I Wore/DIY [ripped jeans] February 19, 2009

I finally finished (well, maybe) my ripped jeans.  They started out like so…

were inspired by…


and now look like this…


I don’t think they’ll stay in one piece for long but oh well, they’re fun.  I’m not usually so trendy but I do love a good DIY. I’ve also done some acid wash jeans but I’ll save that for another post.

A closer look:

To get this look I…

  • sprayed the fuck out of the pants with a bleach/water mixture (more bleach than water)
  • washed pants x2 and let them air dry
  • using a sewing machine, I took them in at the sides. I guess the bleach stretched the fabric.
  • took scissors and cut lines into the front of the pants; frayed the edges with my fingers.
