Ten easy ways to refashion your old jeans

There is a lot you can do with an old pair of jeans. If you are looking to create something stylish and innovative but have trouble coming up with ideas, here are a few easy DIY concepts that will have your old jeans looking new and trendy.

  1. Lace

Adding lace to a regular pair of jeans is a great way to glam it up. You can do this at the hems, pockets, or sides, depending on the look you’re hoping to achieve. You can also use lace patch holes and reinforce a pair of ripped jeans to help the tears from expanding.

  • Embroidery

Adding a few stitches on your jeans with a contrasting color of embroidery thread is a sure way to give your regular, boring jeans, a trendy and fun look. You can never go wrong with a couple of stitches from geometric patterns, flowers, or foliage, to words and phrases.

  • Cut it down

When you think of making a new garment, you know it’s a lot of work. However, turning your old pair of jeans into a pair of cut off shorts is a simple 20-minute procedure.

  • Studs

You can put your creative skills to the test by adding a touch of style to your regular jeans using studs. Stick them onto your garment with some fabric glue around the pockets, hems, or thighs to give it a radiant, fun look.

  • Pearls

Like studs, stitching pearls onto your jeans is a creative way to give it a new look. Pearl embellishments breathe ‘80s glamor into an otherwise dull pair of jeans.

  • Distressed jeans

Buying distressed jeans from a store can be quite costly. So, if you’re looking to add a pair to your wardrobe on a budget, or revamp an old or stained pair, all you need is a razor, sandpaper or a grater. Rub sandpaper or scratch your jeans with a razor or grater at the place where you want to distress, scrape it and then fray the threads, and you have your new pair of distressed jeans.

  • Rip them

Creating rips on jeans is one of the easiest ways to refashion an old pair. All you need is a pair of scissors, cut at your desired position, and pull out the horizontal threads.

  • Patterns

When it comes to creating patterns on a garment, you can either use a bleach pen or fabric paint. Just draw any geometric pattern, floral pattern, tribal pattern, or anything of your choice.

  • Cuffs

Creating cuffs at the bottom of your jeans and embellishing them with pearls, studs, rhinestones, lace, or any other fabric of your choice is a simple way to reinvent your style.

  1. Tie and dye

For this method, you can either dip the jeans into a single color of dye or use various tie and dye techniques to create patterns on your garment. Be sure to use good quality dyes to avoid damaging the fabric.

Who says you have to do away with that old, stained or outdated pair of jeans? Simply refashion it using one or more of the ways mentioned above, and you’re good to go. Trust me; your old jeans have never looked better.
