DIY - Frayed Hem Jeans

I 've be been obsessed with frayed hem jeans for a little while now and have been waiting to do a tutorial on them when I finally decided which jeans were going to make the cut (excuse the pun). I bought this pair from Zara in India when I went 2 years back, - they were in the sale (obvs) and since I'm not keen on the length of them I decided they would be perfect to fray. So here you go - a little DIY on how to fray your own pair of jeans!

What you need:

Ball point of dress makers chalk (whatever you have available to you)

Using the scissors make a snip up the inside seam of the leg to the length of how long you would like the frayed section to be. Turn the jeans inside out and with a pen mark a line along the width of the leg from the end of your cut. This is your guide to make sure you don't end up getting to carried away with the fraying.

Using the scissors cut the original hems off the bottom of the jeans. Once these are removed you are ready to start fraying. Using the unpicker start pulling away the white fibre strands (if you have regular standard denim jeans - the blue type). As you start pulling away the strands you may find you can pull the strands clean away from the rest of the jean. Carry on doing this until you reach the pen mark you drew in as your guide.
