Lace Jean Cuff, DIY

If your jeans are too long  cut them and add a touch of lace in minutes.

 Tutorial
Things you need.
  1.  Jeans
  2. Lace about 2 to 3 inches wide and about 30 inches long.
  3. Scissors
  4. Sewing machine or you can hand sew this.
 #1 cut the jeans to the length you want
#2 measure and cut your lace.
#3 Pin the lace to the inside of your jeans sew about an a half of an inch from the bottom of the jeans.





You can stop here and this is what they look like..peeking out from under your jeans.. OR......


 You can cuff the jeans,
Sew around the top of the lace to anchor it and have a lace cuff.




 I also added a little lace to one of the pockets. (Optional)
I hand stitched this.



Possibilities are endless.
Dye the lace a color then sew  it on.
Have a Super Saturday!
Lots of <3,
Anne

  1. I love this. The jeans look amazing!
    I definitely prefer the lace when it's folded back over rather than peeking out! Love your shoes as well!

    1. I like the lace both ways! If you attached the lace really well to the underside, you could have the best of both worlds by pinning it up when you want it cuffed....

  13. Hello Anne, I just adore your wonderful idea. I "pinned" it & tried it myself. I am working on a blog post about it & giving you a shout-out. {I'll be posting it later today when I have time to put my jeans on & take a photo}. Thanks for the "PIN-spiraton"!

    Warmly, Michelle
