So with the weather coming out to play just in time for Easter, being short of cash I’m in need of some new clothes! But at the moment I just can’t afford it. So I went through my draws and found old pairs of jeans or well worn ones and tops and decided to totally restyle them into ripped shorts 😉
So I measured on my leg with a pen how much lenght I wanted to take off (bearing in mind I’m leaving 2 more inches for turnovers) and then I cut right the way across .
I then started making small little cuts on the actual jeans with scissors, just small lines will do
I did the same on the pockets at the back.
So from this point my cuts are where I want them etc …..
We then put them on a normal wash in the washing machine and wait for them to finish
.. … ……
I now wait …..
Gok Wan eat your heart out ……,I must say I’m impressed 🙂 My pockets on the back came out good too 🙂
It wasn’t time consuming and definetly worth the effort. You can find many ideas on You Tube and the videos are pretty straightfoward and easy to copy and follow.
I also Managed to make an off the shoulder top too 🙂 so before you throw your old clothes, see if there’s anything you can do to recycle them.
