a pair of old white jeans (or shorts)
needle and yarn
1. Cut your jeans at the desired length (maybe take different shorts as a model).
2. Dye your jeans! I used a mandarine tone and left it about five minutes in the bowl.
3. Now the best part: destroy your shorts. I used sandpaper to get a bleach effect and a carpet
cutter to frazzle the hem and make holes into the fabric.
4. Take the patterned fabric and fix it with fixing pins onto your shorts (on one side). Sew the
fabric on the jeans, cutting it near the seams in the end.
I'm pretty thrilled by the result, I like the colour and the patterned fabric is matching just fine. I can see myself wearing them with a white shirt and sandals (if only it would be summer here in Germany). I hope you are inspired!
