DIY ripped denim – and technique tips! – with Levi’s 501 CT’s

Today’s DIY project is all about taking denim matters into our own hands at CHAPTER FRIDAY HQ. As much as I’m obsessed with the perfect big knee rips – there are Pinterest boards dedicated to it for a reason – the wear and tear hardly ever hits me where it needs to. As a shorter girl, my knees just aren’t where retailers think they are.

Our blank canvas is a pair of Levi’s 501 CT and I’ll honestly call it a reinvented classic. (Somehow the vintage ones don’t always make for flattering fit for me). But ehrm… what is the CT all about? Levi’s head of design Jonathan Cheung puts it into words like this: “For years, people have taken the iconic 501 and customized them by getting on a sewing machine and giving the legs a little taper or crop. With the 501 CT, we’ve done that work for you,”. Aha!

As far as fit goes, the 501 CT can be worn true-to-size but you might want to size down for a super slim fit that sits higher on the waist. For a cool, baggier fit, simply size up. OK, let’s get crafty!

In your DIY toolkit
As you know, it takes some of the simplest tools to spice up denim. Most of these are probably lying around your house! What you will need for different effects – from fades to rips – is:
– a pair of scissors
– sandpaper
– a Stanley knife
– tweezers
– a cheese grater. This tool is often recommended online but didn’t really do the trick for us so you might as well leave it out.

How to customize your boyfriend jeans (or girlfriend jeans; Yara wore her CT’s true to size for that look)? Here are a few tips and tricks to give your denim a distressed look the exact way you like it. From now on, you’ll cruise through outfit choices.

Distressing your jeans: the options

diylevistekst8

1. A cuff at the ankle can look pretty indeed, but cutting it off and makes it look wilder.

2. Scrape your jeans with sandpaper. It might sound surprising, but by rubbing your jeans with it, you get that washed out effect. Use it on the edges of your jeans and the lines of the pockets, giving your denim a playful, vintage vibe.

3. A Stanley knife creates more delicate, softer cuts than scissors. It gives you the opportunity to build up and experiment with rips and cuts without overdoing it right away.

4. Tweezers are a multifunctional tool; use those to pull on threads and perfect your cuts.

Don’t have the patience or skills to pull off a DIY project on your own? Snap up an old pair of denim to practice on first, get your friends involved and add sweets. Et voilà, you have a DIY studio at home.
