Step 1: Choose The Right Kind Of Denims
The first and foremost step in creating the right kind of ripped jeans is to decide on which pair of jeans you would want to experiment on. It’s not just the colour that you have to choose, there are hundreds of other things to consider-like would you want your ripped jeans to be skinny, or high waist or would it be better to go with your boyfriend jeans?
A good idea would be to experiment on a cheap pair of jeans before you begin snipping on your expensive ones and if you like that distressed look, it would be better to wash your jeans in bleach and then start the ripping process.
Step 2: Gather The Right Supplies
The key to getting the right kind of DIY ripped jeans is to have them distressed before you begin with the ripping. Rips on a brand new pair of jeans look really out of place. So use some sandpaper, steel wool or some pumice stone to prep your jeans. Now decide where to have the rips. Now use scissors or cutters to rip straight, horizontal slits in areas you want to distress. To make pulling out the indigo threads (i.e., the synthetic thread of the dyed and manufactured denim material) even easier, make sure that the slits you rip are at least 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch from each other.
Step 3: Make The Holes!
If you are a stickler for equal rips then you should also have a ruler to make the ripping symmetrical. If you want big holes in your jeans that you can start ripping it with your hand itself, but if you would rather prefer the white threads, then you should go for scraping the denim carefully so that the threads begin to appear. You can use a tweezer to further make those rips frayed. This definitely adds to the charm of the DIY ripped jeans.
For starters, limit your frays and rips. You don’t want to go overboard with all the rips because they may make the jeans look shoddy. Concentrate on few rips at a time to get your dream ripped jeans!
