 MY DIY WHITE RIPPED SKINNY LEGS: PART ONE!



 As a child growing up I can remember I always use to occupy myself with cutting up pieces of fabric which I found just laying around etc. Scratching for some needle and thread or a pair of scissors. I didn’t have a clue of how to stich! I remember I was only six, yet did what I thought was sewing which I caught from watching my ma.
I have to add games in the street was never my thing not because I wasn’t allowed, but because I thoroughly enjoyed keeping myself busy sewing instead. I can remember how frustrated it would be if I made something and it just would not fit which I am sure I ended up in tears. Playing on my own as I was the only child for a very long time. I would play doll house and think that one day I would probably end up making clothes. Yet, I also liked making money and playing shop. Buying tons of things imagining myself being a rich stylish lady or being the shop keeper owning the store ringing up everything being purchased by my dolls, lol. Also taking old supermarket receipts found in the plastic bags from Pick n Pay etc. and recalculating it with my mom’s calculator checking if the total on the slip would be the same as I calculated that made me think its pure magic. Which right now in my accounting world means to “Balance” Lol…These fond memories are definitly making me smile right now. 
   
I however didn’t stop trying to make my own clothes by cutting up old ones which I often got scolded for by my dad which made me end up in tears  again. That’s why I enjoyed working on this DIY Ripped White Skinny Leg Denims I envisioned for one of my spring hot items and didn’t get scolded at, nor was it too small.

 WHAT DID I USE?

·         Pair of scissors

·         Ruler

·         A marker

·         Main item OLD WHITE SKINNY LEG DENIMS FROM MR PRICE
HOW DID I DO IT?

  • I firstly laid down the denims straight and leveled evenly

·  I then started at the bottom by measuring 5cm from the hem straight up and marked it. This was done for both legs.

·    Thereafter I cut the 5cm off, as straight as possible both legs.  
·   I took my pair of scissors and started with the right middle leg, then just started to rip it everywhere I wanted to, on both legs.
·   Thereafter I tried cutting out a heart shape on the back pocket to just show off how much I love my jeans and my “artwork” Lol.
·         Lastly I just flipped over the hems and ironed it flat to stay fixed.
AND THERE YOU GO!
I still would like to add some more detail like glitter, iron on prints etc. but will leave it for part two.I hope you enjoyed reading.
