DIY: Ripped Jeans: I Did It Myself #DIM

By Daniella Djiogan

What will you need?

A pair of jean, any sort will do. I used this one particular jean because I thought it looked too dull for its own good. It was just thereeee~.

When I first bought it, I was contented. I loved that it did fit me perfectly, since it is such a pain for me to find jeans that actually fit well. I also loved the elastic on it.

However, as time went by, it just sat in my closet like some of my clothes. I would look at it and sigh* Clearly, its purpose was close to non-existence till yesterday when I spontaneously decided to rip it.

The ripped jean trend has been there for quite awhile, and I had thought of buying an already made one. However, as an online shopping fanatic, I was unsure about whether they would fit me if I bought it. Also, the price seemed rather on the high end for some. So, my decision to rip this denim short was nicely justified by those two reasons.

Personally, I had never done this before, but I was like…’Hey! why not give it a try’. I thought of it as a henna design, where you can’t really go wrong when doing it.

I literally took a pair of scissors, a pencil (which I really didn’t use), a needle & thread.

This is how it started off as

Then, I folded the ends more to shorten the pants in order to give it a little more of that feminine vibe. After folding, I used the needle and thread to sew the ends. I also started ripping it on one side as you can see below.

I repeated the same thing on the other side, but not making it too similar to the other side. One needs some diversity..hehe~

Below is how the end product looks…I really love the result! 20151004_145049
