First of all, things to keep with you before starting off:
- and Sandpaper.
Step: 1 Pick Out Jeans
The first step is very obvious. Pick out the jeans, be it old or new, no issues. Just make sure it isn’t faded or looks too old. There is nothing specific about buying a new pair of jeans to fray or using the old one. The thing that matters is its look and fitting.
Step:2 Mark and Cut Out
After that, slip on the jeans and roughly mark the area with chalk according to the length you desire for! Then lay the jeans on the flat surface and mark the inches properly. (For ankle-length go for 2-3 inches above the hem.) After marking, cut the marked area using scissors. Make sure it’s not uneven.
Tip:- Here, we have shown the straight-edged bottom frayed jeans, but if you want to go for something bolder, feel free to cut the bottom of jeans unevenly. And if you are planning to cut the straight fit denim, then go for zigzag fray jeans.
Step: 3 Finishing
Now, the last part of the process. Pick up the sandpaper and start fraying the newly hemmed area. Don’t fray it much, as it will automatically shred after each wear and washes. For the natural look, scrunch the bottom of the jeans roughly. And now you are ready with the frayed jeans. Leave it as it is for an unfinished finished look.
