Step 2: The Cut

Cut the legs of the jeans following the dashed line on the picture.

Start from the inner part and be careful not to cut the pockets: you will need them!

Cut the zipper to fully open the trousers.

Step 3: Done

I used to do this as a kid to my old jeans that I would tear up (I was and still am hard on clothes). Nice to see that others had the same idea. I like the use of the belt though, that was always my short fall (I outgrew my tool belt).

Love it!

The staging with the gloves is the best!! So clever :)

Thank you very much! I'm happy to know you liked my idea of using gloves instead of my own hands.

Why didn't I thought of this earlier, so obvious! And very practical. My next pair of old pants will be used as a first try.
