How to do the ripped jeans technique at home?
To make the ripped men’s / women’s jeans , you will need a pair of pants that you no longer use much, that are old or simply some classic jeans of your choice.
Once we have the pants we want, it is time to start marking. We can do it by wearing them or on a flat surface.
We proceed to choose the parts that we are going to break, such as the part of the knee, the thigh or the calf. This is up to you.
With a chalk or a pencil, and a ruler you will make horizontal straight lines of 5 cm or 6 cm. And tall about two fingers or so. You can pull out multiple lines, like 4 to get a pretty thick tear.
If you want to have very ripped pants you can make the lines much bigger. In other words, it has a length of 10 cm, and a width of about 3 cm or less so that it looks more stylized.
This is entirely up to your preference. Remember they are worn out pants and there is not much to lose, the idea is to make a sloppy look.
With a sandpaper that is not very aggressive, you will rub the part that you have marked once the pants are on the table. I recommend putting something flat inside the pants so as not to damage the back before doing this whole process.
The next thing will be that with the scissors or with a blade you will cut the lines that you have marked in each part of the trouser leg. Then with a tweezers you will take out each tissue that is vertically.
And finally with the blade or with the open scissors, you will rub along the edges of these torn and in other parts of the pants with the sandpaper. You can sew around what you’ve cut so it doesn’t break any more, if you like.
And that’s it, put them in the washing machine to finish giving them that rustic touch and so that they break just a little more.
