DIY Deconstructed Jeans



A pair of my black skinny jeans came out of the wash one day with white streaks all over them. After a few failed attempts at removing the streaks, I decided I was going to have to get rid of them. A trick that a used back in high school to deconstruct my jeans came to mind, so I decided to try it out.

Simply lay them out on a flat surface, and trace on lines where you want to make your cuts. Using fabric shears, I made rough cuts where I had marked on the thighs and knees, then used the cheese grater to texturize them.


To complete the deconstruction process, I washed them once more, and they were ready to wear, with the white streaks now unnoticeable.

Just in time for the trendy distressed jeans look!
