Description

I ‘stole’ one basic 5 pockets jeans pattern from factory, and I adjusted to my size. Played a little bit with the details, came up with these two jeans—one for myself and one for my best friend.

How to wash a jeans at home? What I did was to use sand paper+bleach+ laundry balls+ washing machine. First finished the pants, need to make it bigger size, will shrink after wash, then use sand paper rub the parts you want to be lighten, rub a bit harder! Don’t worry about the fabric, denim is tough. If you want some crikle look in the pockets, you can stitch some peak, loose stitch, rub with sand paper on the top of the peak too. Then wash with some bleach(depends on how white you want) laugry balls wash couple times, use a bit fabric soften in the last wash. Dry it and put buttons, rivets on and back patch on—-FINISH!
Sorry for my English, I hope it is clear enough to understand :-p
