Fringe Binge

Happy Fashion Friday!

Today I’m going to sprinkle in a little DIY project, because this week we’re talking about fringed jeans.

I found you #FringeJeans 🙌

Been dying to try this, so on Saturday, I ventured out to Old Navy when I found out they were having a big sale. The WHOLE store was 40% off! While I was there I picked up some super cheap jeans, which I highly recommend using when you do a DIY like this for the first time – there’s a huge difference between making a mistake on an $18 pair of jeans versus a $150 pair. If you can, recycle your old jeans!

The link to the DIY is here.

The beauty of this project is that it really only requires three things. A pair of jeans, a seam ripper, and fabric shears. Oh, PLUS, a lot of patience.

 says if you don’t like the way the threads tangle together after your jeans go through the wash, you can untangle the threads with your fingers, so don’t fret! I personally love the way it looks tangled.


Here is how mine turned out:


When you can DIY a pair of jeans similar to a pair Moda Operandi sold for $295, you’re definitely going to feel confident in them.


They are a work in progress. I’l probably finish them up this weekend when I have more time. It’s a tedious project but so worth the effort!

Have you tried a fashion DIY lately? Post pics – we want to see!
