DIY 2: Lace-up Jeans


This can be done on a pair of wide/loose leg jeans that you want to make skinny (or just for the look of lace-up jeans).

Take a pair of jeans and cut out a long triangle with the point of the triangle hitting the back top of your leg. Then, with the scissors, knife, or razor edge, punch holes along both sides of the triangle all the way down each side, 1/4 of an inch away from the cut edge.

Finally, starting at the top, lace up like a pair of sneakers with ribbon, leather laces, or satin cord (which is what I used). The bigger you cut the triangle, the more skin will be exposed. This can also be done on the side, or as i've seen recently in the front.
