What do you need?
A pen or marker
Your favourite pair of Relay Jeans
Jump into your jeans so that you can measure where you’d like to create the slits and distressing. Generally, the holes / rips occur in places of high wear – knees, pockets bottom of the legs
Using the pen or marker, mark out the area that you’re going to be cutting. Jump back out of your jeans.
Take the thick cardboard and place it into your jeans under the area where you are going to be cutting. This stops you from cutting the layer underneath!
Begin cutting. Watch out for your fingers, the box cutter blade is sharp. Slice across (left to right or right to left) and as wide as you’d like the rip to be.
Taking your sandpaper, rub at parts of your jean that you’d like to create more definition, again these would be in areas of high usage – tops of pockets, thighs, back pockets. Keep rubbing until you have reached the level of fading and thinness that you are looking for.
Almost there, all that’s left to do, is throw the jeans into the washing machine and give them a good wash, allowing the fabric to fray and pull apart in the areas that you’ve cut.
