Hi there Fabs!
Welcome back to another outfit, shopping, and wardrobe update. This update features these “DIY Fringe Jeans” that are now on fleek. These jeans are about 15 years old, somewhat dingy in color, and had an oil stain on them in the thigh area that I couldn’t remove. So I hardly ever wore them. Being that I’ve been cleaning out my closet, I was about to throw them out when a light bulb went off in my head to fringe them up.
Now that ripped jeans are trending, I let my imagination go to work and this is the outcome. See the rips in the thigh area of the jeans? That’s where the oil stain was. I used a jagged edge knife and cut the jeans until I could no longer see the stain. I knew I wanted to add a fringe, so I put the jeans on and marked the jeans in the thigh area as to how far I wanted to cut them up the thighs, or shall I say how far I wanted to cut them above the knees.
After that, I cut them one side at a time. I did not measure the size of the fringe cut as I did not want them to look perfect. I only marked how high I wanted them to go above the knees.
This is my very first DIY project, and I’m so proud of my DIY Fringe Jeans. These 15 year old jeans now look and feel brand new, and I didn’t have to spend a dime.
If you follow my blog, I recently did a post “The Choker Necklace”. I specifically bought the necklace because it can be worn as a choker or a hanging necklace, and I knew it would work well with a turtleneck. So you know I’m very happy with this purchase.
The Turtleneck is old too, and I decided to keep it as well.
Now these snake tall boots – wide calf are brand new, and I love mixing old with new. I caught these boots on sale for just $20.00. So when you think about it, it’s like I’m wearing a $20.00 outfit. These boots are very comfortable with lots of room in the calf area. My calves are on the larger side, and these boots are still a perfect fit. So very happy with this purchase too.
I have about 8 more pairs of old jeans that are in desperate need of refashioning, so I will be back with more DIY’s.
Let me know what you think of this outfit and my DIY Fringe Jeans in comments. I would love to know what you think. If you have links to some cool DIY jean projects, please share that too.
