Simple Updated Jeans


Distressed, revamped, chopped, slashed, patched..

You name it - denim is it - there isn't anything you can't do to denim at the moment. So when challenged with 'what can you do to update 'mom' jeans?' I actually had a very quick idea, that is super simple. 

Create a pin-tuck down the centre front of each leg. Simple yet attractive. I also chopped the hem's off of the jeans to allow them to fray wash by wash...

Simple instructions below and feel free to experiment - coloured threads, lurex thread, stitch width...
