DIY: Turn Your Old Jeans Into The Frayed Hem Trend

By  | 

Remember how a couple of months ago we told you that frayed hem or the raw denim trend is what it’s all about this season? Well, if your wallet has been in the doldrums since then, and your little piggy bank is still crying to be fed, don’t fret. We’ve got you covered!

Getting that frayed hem without spending all that much isn’t difficult — all it needs is a little crafty skill and the courage to take an old pair of jeans and go ham (or hem in this situation) on them.

Remember, although the DIY focusses on denim pants, you can get creative and test your skills on a denim jacket and create that raw hem around the sleeves as well.

YouTube guru Scherezade Shroff shows you how to upcycle your old denims and create that raw hem effect stylishly. In terms of durability, denims do last the test of time, so simply take a pair you’d like to spare and snippity snip away!
