One more thing....after making the rips where you wan them to be, just put the jeans or shorts into the washing machine and that will create the white threads exactly where you want it to be.

Old method! Sorry to burst your bubbles but we were doing this in the 80's as part of Hip Hop Culture. Yes, thus the reason stores carry ripped Jeans today. And by the way; the same goes for So-called Acid washed Jeans that are copied from Hip Hop culture. We created Acid Washed jeans also; only we didn't called them acid washed jeans... In the early 80's we called them "Faded-On Jeans" and as such, we put then layed them inside our bath tubs and poured Bleach on the jeans in certain areas where we wanted the faded spots to be. Unfortunately, Hip Hop Culture don't get the credit; white people would likely credit the fashion world for our ideas - ideas which the fashion world imitated from the Hood, or as white people like to call it - "The Ghetto." Same goes for how you see white people tuck the front of their blouses or shirts inside their pant. Yes, the idea also came from the hood - (black people) which we created specifically to showcase our Name Belt Buckles. We realized the only way to show off our blinged-out belts and name buckles was to tuck our shirts in above the buckle; a style that played out in the early 2000's. Years later, white people adopted it as a fashion statement which they emulated from the fashion world who emulated us...."The Hood" a.k.a the Ghettos. The same goes for Twerking...black girls were Twerking in the hood 20 years before white girls even saw what Twerking look like. LOL But no; leave it to Miley Cyrus NON-TWERKING SELF and all of a sudden it's the shyt. LOL You people are funny! I'm not hating or being ridiculous, just giving you folks History of what you now see today...remember - this all happened in the yearly 80's.

+Alana Lewis yes
Alana Lewis (2 years ago)
+larissa d would u need to wash them in a washing machine ??
larissa d (2 years ago)
She cut a long jeans into shorts and when you wash them the bottom becomes straggly because it's a fresh cut and doesn't have a hem. So if you want those threads you're gonna have to cut your jeans and then just wash them.

What if you have white jeans? How do you get to look that well
dex b (2 years ago)
All the strands would be white so you likely just pull out the one's running vertically.

Miss B. (2 years ago)
that was supposed to be up on the comment above. lol
Miss B. (2 years ago)
I iron mine, then lay them flat and fold them in half, then mark where you want to cut, then I cut them together if I don't mark with a chalk. so they're straight and even. Also you can put them on and mark how short you want them. To get the frayed effect at the bottom just pull out the white threads.

thanks so much for explaining the white thread, blue thread physics. its so much easier now

Also just making cuts in the denim and running them through the washer 3-5 times makes them naturally frayed looking and/or helps them fray more
Cha Hernandez (4 years ago)
How did you get the bottoms of your shorts frayed like that?
Justice Hayes (2 years ago)
Washer and dryer.

how did you do the bottoms? Did you just cut them or rip them off?
• Caelin • (3 years ago)
DONT RIP THE BOTTOM.. I thought the same thing when I made my first pair of high waisted jeans but the best way to distress the bottom of the jeans is to do basically the same thing you did to make the holes. Just use tweezers. After that, throw them in the washer then the dryer and they should turn out distressed 😊
Gabby Wood (4 years ago)
If you want a more frayed edge, you should make a small cut then rip across the leg and cut the seams as you go but be careful to keep your ripping as straight as you can (if you want) you could cut them, but in my opinion it would look too clean so I rip mine just really careful

Guys you need to understand that every jeans are different than the other, don't expect every pants to look the same. Also you need to machine wash, and dry it in the dry machine. If it didn't happen on the time, try a couple washes more.
Khyati Kumar (4 years ago)
I did this but even after washing them those square edges didnt " fluff out "

The fluffed-out square shape of the holes actually vary on the kind of shorts you have

what do you wash them on in your washing machine? like what temperature/option things do you put it on? can you just spin them?

USE a Dremmel tool with a little sanding drum with the sandpaper, sand in the same direction as the white threadsonly enough to weaken the blue threads then pull apart. and trow in washer. much easier, doing like this since 1998.

this was actually well done, good job. And of course it helps that the person wearing them can really sport these types of shorts.

Nicole (4 years ago)
I've done shorts like this a few times, and I have found that if you pick apart your threads yourself they all come apart and look terrible after you wash them. Just take an Xacto knife and make a ton of lines close together on the shorts, gently pull to make sure they will fray and put them in the wash. They will turn out 100x's better than doing this yourself and takes 5 minutes instead of 3 hours.
Marvin Tallent (1 year ago)
Nicole Chamier exactly!! that's what I do
Alexis T. (4 years ago)
my white threads keep tearing :(
Angel loves you! (4 years ago)
+Alexis T.  lol at first it was kind of hard for me, b/c my shorts were white but i finally got it. They are perfect now! Also, your right about the straight line cut. I made mine very straight and it helped..
Alexis T. (4 years ago)
I figured it out though! it's important when you're making the cuts to have the shorts inside out because the white threads are easier to see. Here, you want to make A REALLY STRAIGHT CUT. the smallest diagonal cut will make them tear! so yeah, cut them straight and the white threads should all stay connected. :))
