DIY Ripped Knee Jeans
Lately, I’ve been seeing these ripped knee pants a lot! And even tried some on (as if I did not have enough jeans!) but (gladly!) none of them looked good… mostly because I’m short, so the broken section was closer to my ankles than to my knees!. That’s when I realized that I should make a DIY!
First, you need to find a pair of jeans that will look good with a broken knee. I picked a pair of skinny jeans from Forever 21. Once you know which one you want to destroy, try them on…and mark with a little piece of soap where you want to cut them. You should make the mark in both knees and double check that they are at the same height. Also, make sure that the line is in the middle of your knee.
The next step is the scariest one! Time to cut the jeans with your Craft knife! To be careful, place a magazine inside the leg, and make sure it gives you the shape of half the leg. Pick a magazine you do not like, cause it might get damaged with the knife (Extra points if it belongs to someone else). Don’t be scared… and cut fast! If you want to, you can twist the ends so it breaks a little bit more, but that’s something that will happen along with the wearing and washing 🙂
