These are the jeans after completion
Front of the jeans
For the distressing: I had heavy weight sandpaper and I just sanded across the front of the jeans and the back down the legs. I then cut holes where I wanted more distressing. I sat in front of the TV for about three hours last Thursday and pulled all the threads 🙁 That’s the most pain staking part of this process pulling the threads. But once you get a few pulled you can pull the rest until the end. I also did not finish the bottom of the jeans so I could wear them straight or cuffed. Clearly the cuffed is much cuter.
