About 3 months ago I went along to a clothes swap and picked up these beauties and set about making them more wearable:
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Ripped jeans
- Fabric to cover holes
- Needle and thread (same colour as jeans)
- Sewing pins
I popped down to the local op shop and picked out a grey long sleeve turtle neck top, in a light stretch fabric. As these jeans are quite tight - I needed the stretch in the fabric so that the patches would move with me and the rest of the pants.
I then cut patches about 1 inch wider than the holes in the pants, placed the fabric behind the holes, and from the front, pinned the patches to the jeans.
I then grabbed a single white cotton thread and sewed them on, using a simple back stitch and trying to sew as straight lines as possible!
Some cute new jeans for summer that I feel much more comfortable wearing :)
