(left: after cut, before distressing) these are my first pair of DIY destroyed jean shorts! the jeans only cost me $1 from a thrift store! all I used were scissors to cut them at an angle, and a coarse grain sand paper block for the destroyed spots. I threw them in the wash with a little bleach on high heat, and then in the dryer on super high heat to promote fringing. I ♥ these to death, and they were obviously super cheap too! thinkin about adding studs later as well...more to come soon!
