With distressed jeans comes great responsibility. Holes are the knees are good:) Holes on the crotch or behind are not good :(
|This is another pair of jeans in my 'distressed denim' collection. And....maybe this pair is ready for retirement. |
With holey jeans- you gotta know 'when to say when'!
Instead of layering the patch on the top of my jeans, I placed it on the inside of my pants. This way, the lace and denim show through the hole. (Important: Don't just use lace! You need the denim patch behind it, otherwise your skin will show through!)
|Here is the hole after I patched it. I cut down the patch and lace to fit. |
It still leaves the jeans looking distressed, without the 'peep show' of my thigh!
And voila! My distressed jeans will live to see another day. This tutorial would be great for adults or kids. Think how cute a pair of little girl jeans would look with lace patches on the knees? The lace adds a vintage touch- don't you agree?
Are you a fan of distressed jeans? How many holes is too many?
