Welcome back babes! Part 2 of my denim series will cover my favorite hidden gem...SEAMS! Manipulating seams/hems are easy and not time consuming at all. If you follow me on social media, you' probably remember a photo I posted of some Gucci jeans I wanted to re-create and that's where I got my inspo for this DIY.
What you'll need to grab:
- Seam ripper. These are super cheap and worth while to buy. You can find one at any store that sells sewing supplies; even Walmart or Target should have one. If you don't want to go out and buy one, try and grab your sharpest pair of scissors or a knife, but you'll have to be suuppeerrr careful because this technique requires precision.
- Jeans of your choice (mine are thrifted)
STEP 1: THE POCKETS
In a nutshell, you're taking the back pockets off to expose the discolored dye underneath. The reason why I recommended a seam ripper is because the threads are tightly knit and sometimes hard to see. Seam rippers can maneuver through the small crack and crevices to undo the thread that is holding the pocket to the jeans. Again, if you're using a knife or scissors you'll have to be careful not to slice a hole in the jeans. Like so, you'll carefully just remove the thread from each pocket until they're completely off.
STEP 2: THE HEM (AKA BOTTOM OF THE JEANS)
Next you'll be doing the same thing, just removing the thread that's holding the bottom hem together. (this is how mine looked at the bottom)
Then you're done! You can distress the bottom if you choose to do so, or leave them as is and the cuff the bottoms. I left them and just rolled the bottoms up.
I've received so many compliments on these jeans when I wear them out so trust me they'll look great when you're finished. Thanks for listening!
