Raw hem jeans are now becoming a trend, and just like any other denim trends, you will start seeing more of them at the streets on the following weeks and months, so before that happens and you can join this new fashion style before anybody else, we will show you how to do your own frayed hem jeans at home following some easy steps.
“All denim alternatives do not take too long to become a trend, as more people likes finding new ways to wear their favorite denim clothes, this is not about wearing jeans anymore, it is an art that involves making new styles with the denim clothes on your wardrobe”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, a manufacturer company in Mexico dedicated to mainly do denim clothes.
Here are the instructions to do your own frayed hem jeans:
- Take your favorite skinny jeans and measure them to where you want to new hem to fall, mark it with a pencil or chalk with a straight line across the hem, or just cut off the extra fabric, as the hem does not have to be entirely “perfect”, use a sharp pair of scissors to cut the denim fabric easily.
- Once your jeans’ hem has been cut off, check it out and make sure both legs have been cut equally, if not, make the necessary adjustments, make clean cuts to make the frayed hem look professionally done.
- Now, for the fraying, make slits in the denim in a vertical angle, those tiny little cuts will give the finishing you are looking for the hem of your jeans.
- Finally rub the hems together to create friction that will fray your hems, remember not to sew the hems, or that will create the appearance of an ordinary pair of jeans.
“It is great to have a pair of jeans at your closet that you can pull out and play with to make new finishes, jeans last for too long that you can give them new life or recycle them when you do not want to wear them anymore”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
