DIY: ACNE Pop Trash Jeans
Like I mentioned, I spent some of my break working on little DIY projects, and one that I’ve been wanting to do for a while was my own take on ACNE POP TRASH jeans.
So I set out to create and thought I’d share my method of madness.
First, I went hunting for a worn out pair of men’s jeans. I found a vintage pair of Wrangler’s that seemed to work .. they are a bit too big.. and eventually I might find another pair.. but for now.. they work.
I grabbed a few tools.. fabric scissors, an x-acto knife, and a cutting board.
To give them the cool cropped look, I pulled them on and marked where I wanted them to fall.. then cut off the bottoms.. and got to work.
I started by creating a faux-torn hem at the bottoms. About an inch up I started slashing… enough so that when they were weathered it would look like a worn in hem.
Then, I started creating the cuts up the leg.. I grouped the slashed together to create the shapes I wanted and went up the leg.. stopping around the pocket area.
I also slashed up the back pockets a bit, but let most of the back legs free… the front looked all tattered and torn.. ready to hit the washing machine.
After one wash.. they came out PERFECT!! I loved how they turned out.. though now I’m on a tear.. looking for anything and everything to tatter and torture!
