Jeans – “shredded” designer look

dressed2atee | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Hello everyone, my brother-in-law has a pair of designer jeans that have the shredded look…you know they look like the fabric is raveling…does anyone know how to do that to a pair of jeans.  He wants me to shred a pair for him?

Happy sewing!

    Most people just use a razor blade at the knees, etc. wherever you want the tears, & just let them ravel away - a few washes helps that along - just don't put the cuts too close together or you'll have a large hole instead of the slashes.

    It still boggles my mind why people will pay good money to buy these used-looking jeans (& some are VERY expensive).  A better place to get them is a thrift shop, then cut them yourself.

    Dressed;Sandpaper is also a good way to give damage, wearmarks, and fade spots to new jeans.T.
