When I saw the 3X1 cropped fringed jeans about on the street I was loving them.

. but I am a sustainable fashion kind of girl and if there is a way to use what i have got I will so I thought surely it is not that hard. I have done some cool DIY denim things in the past.

Doesn’t require photos because I did it in about 10 mins flat.

STEP 1 

GET AN OLD PAIR OF UNLOVED JEANS 

I got a pair of old  APC slim leg jeans that I never wear.

 

STEP 2 

DECIDE WHAT LENGTH YOU WANT THEM TO BE (incl Fringing) 

I then cut them with scissors to crop length then cut 1cm(approx) fringes

 

STEP 3

CUT THE LENGTH & VERTICAL STRIPS

Cut the length then make vertical cuts to the length you want the fringes to be – I did mine about 1cm width (approx) you can use a ruler if you are really exact.. I am not with DIY.

(if you want – sew around the top of them to avoid them going shorter  – I didn’t .. I wanted fast DIY)

STEP 4

CHUCK IN WASHING MACHINE 

Chucked in the washing machine and bingo …

 

Repeat process again for thinner fringes … see below

Let me know if you have a go — so easy peasy !

Worn with @RadicalYes toe tappers available here 

Let me know how you go.

I often DIY fray and cut up jeans that are not getting any love or ones I find in Opshops while thrifting.

Some other projects – again basic … cut with scissors, chuck in washing machine … nothing tricky.

2015 – DIY frayed and customised maxi skirt inspired by Chloé seen here  – got a thrifted one – cut out the panel in middle to make split and cut the hems to fray it and bingo
