HOW TO: Deconstructed Raw Hem Denim Jacket DIY in 5 Easy Steps

February 24, 2016

 Hi everyone, today I'm going to show you how to make you own dream denim jacket, as seen in S/S16 trends. 
You can start with an old denim jacket, maybe you already own one or you can raid the thrift shops in search for a nice, cheap, 100% cotton denim jacket. It looks much nice if you use a real jeans jacket, not some cheap denim-like fabric.

First, I will show you the final result, how the jacket looks after 2-3 hours of hand-sewing and deconstructing.

A raw hem is a must for this spring and summer.

An "evil eye" iron-on patch will add a bit of glamour.

DIY Raw Hem Deconstructed Denim Jacket in 5 STEPS:

1. Deconstruct the pockets, carefully remove the stitching until you reach the pocket lining which, in this happy case is a darker denim.

2. You will need a needle and thread to sew the pocket lining on the front side of the jacket, as seen above.

3. Voilà! You now have awesome denim patches instead of the old pockets. 

4. Do the same for the other side.

5. Remove the stitches carefully until you reveal that gorgeous raw hem. All done!
