Lace Hem Jeans – Summer DIY

CATEGORY: DIY, FASHION

ace hem jeans/ currently wearing/ do it yourself/ swiss blogI really enjoy wearing lace tops and dresses in summer. The other day, when I was going through my old clothes, I found a pair of white jeans that I have not put on for two years. I was about to give them away when I got an idea to customize them with a bit of scalloped lace. It turned out to be a fast and an affordable way to refresh my old jeans. And I still can’t believe how many compliments I receive every time I wear them. 

Here is what you need to make your own lace hem jeans:

  • a pair of old jeans (I used my old white jeans.)
  • 1 meter (approx. 1 yard) of scalloped, white lace (100% cotton). I got mine for less than CHF5 in Manor (Swiss department store). If you are based abroad, have a look in your local DIY store.
  • a thread and needle
  • handful of thin pins

Voici ce dont vous avez besoin:

– une paire de vieux jeans (j’ai utilisé des jeans blancs mais la couleur n’a vraiment pas d’importance)

– 1 mètre de dentelle à lacet blanc (100% coton). J’ai trouvé la mienne pour moins de CHF5 chez Manor. Si vous habitez en dehors de la Suisse, vérifiez auprès de votre magasin de bricolage local.

– un fil et une aiguille

– épingles à tête

How to do it:

Cut the lace in half. Thread the needle and double knot the ends. Start by stitching up the ends.

Comment faire:

Couper la dentelle en deux. Enfilez l’aiguille et doublez les extrémités. Commencez par fixer les extrémités.

Use the pins to fold the lace to create ruffles:
