We’ve been totally inspired by the stealth comeback of the zippered jean. Besides the jean, we’re seeing zippers on sleeves, leather pants, in front, side and back. So our founder Heather Lipner braved up and put together a quick DIY tutorial for our weekly Weekend Warrior post. Go through the slideshow to check out the steps and more inspiration.
This weekend take your old skinnies and open ‘em up at the ankles :)
Step 1: Do a quick measurement by placing your zipper where you’d like the zipper to go.
Step 2: Pin your pants so you know where your zipper will start.
Step 3: Rip your seams or cut your pants in the spot your zipper is being placed.
Step 4: Pin in your zipper in. Make sure you flip over your pants so you can see how it will look and then fix any imperfections.
Step 5: Sew in your zipper. Start from the top. It’s easier to hand sew the very top.
Step 6: Wear the babies.
