Okay… this is a RIDICULOUSLY EASY DIY and I happen to love it. It’s the perfect vintage Levi’s hack to give those not-so-flattering-super-high-waist jeans a little something extra, though sadly, you do lose your actual pockets, but that’s what handbags are for, right?
I happen to love the idea of bare skin pockets… but they also look great with a little something showing through. And since bodysuits have arisen from the ’90s again, with these mom jeans, they’re the perfect compliment… and it should be noted that I recently bought FIVE OF THEM. This knit turtleneck number is by For Love & Lemons, but I also grabbed three traditional long-sleeved leotards from the local ballet store, so I’m set 😉
Here’s What You Need…
- High waist jeans… low rise will work, but it’ll be REAL CLOSE to your “situation” if you know what I mean, and go from sexy to trashy real quick. But I’ll leave that up to you 😉
Yes, that’s all.
Simply and carefully, cut out the front pockets of your jeans all the way up to the waist, without cutting into the waist or side seams. Leave a little fringe for that distressed look if your jeans are already ripped like mine are.
Yes, that’s it!
