DIY DISTRESSING

HERE’S HOW TO DO IT:

MATERIALS:

MAGAZINE OR A PIECE OF CARDBOARD

TWEEZERS

SCISSORS 

CHALK

RAZOR

 

STEP 1: DECIDE ON THE DISTRESS LEVEL AND LOCATION

Use a piece of chalk to mark any areas you’d like to distress. Think knees, thighs and near the pockets. 

 

STEP 2: START ROUGHING UP YOUR DENIM

Insert magazine or cardboard to protect the bottom layer. Cut horizontal slits in the areas you’d like your rips and distressing. Feel free to mix up the lengths of each slit for a rougher look.

Use a cheap razor to shave the areas you want a roughed up, such as the tops of the pockets on the front and back. 

 

STEP 3: ADD IN FINISHING FRAY

Use tweezers to pull the vertical strings, one at a time, out of your cut area.  This will leave the white horizontal strings across the opening. 

 

ANDDDD, You're good!
