.project: stenciled jeans.

on a hot summer day (today) i had the most brilliant idea. stenciled jeans. the very current native-american isabel marant jeans inspired me to try this trend on for size, in form of large hawaiin-esque flowers down man skinny jeans...i'll do my best to explain how i did them.

project: stenciled jeans

the jeans: i chose a pair of clearance mens faded skinny jeans with a slight drop-crotch for $10 that fit great, amazing!

 

the supplies and prep-work:

supplies: 
  •  fabric paints
  • doilies (cut out center) & large flower print (cut out each flower to use as a stencil)
  • dishwashing sponges (cut into six squares)

cutting to fit: i made sure to try on the pants with a pair of heels to ensure they were cropped to the correct spot. tip: always give a smidge extra of length since this will fray after the first use.

fraying: we used heel-smoothers and wood board to gently fray the jean edges, the fraying will continue to occur over continuous use.

 
in progress:

the most challenging part, which i neglected to take pictures of, is the light paint application to the stencils to ensure the full flower/doily is seen. i used the cream and gold paint and layered the outline and inline of the flower stencil. my sister used the doilies and flowers in red on a pair of daisy dukes, another great look...


the end product:
 
great right?!?


any questions, let me know!

xxo, dany
