D.I.Y: Double Denim

Get the look: Chloe S/S 10


-1 light-wash denim or chambray shirt
-1 pair of medium-wash jeans
-Needle and thread
-Straight pins

1. Cut out the back pockets of the medium-wash jeans; make sure to keep the pockets' outer edge intact.
2. Each pocket is comprised of two layers of denim. Separate those layers by snipping out the thread (use a seam ripper if you have one!). Reserve the top layer for the Extra Credit Step* or discard if you prefer to keep this D.I.Y. super simple.
3. Place and pin the bottom pocket denim onto the shirt where desired. (We like them on the shoulders as well as the front pockets, but they really can go anywhere you want!)
4. Stitch pockets onto the shirt, or if sewing isn't your thing, just use fabric glue to attach the pockets to the shirt!

*Extra Credit Step: For additional Chloe-like flair, use the top layer of the medium-wash pockets to make smaller shoulder details on the light-wash/chambray shirt.

-1 pair of medium-wash jeans
-1 pair of light-wash jeans
-Fabric glue

1. Measure out and mark up two rectangular panels on the light-wash jeans. Make sure these panels are equally wide—ours are 6" x 11"—then cut them out using fabric scissors.
2. Place the darker jeans on a flat surface and determine/mark where you want the patches to go.
3. Apply a generous amount of fabric glue to the backside of the light-wash panels. Be sure to evenly distribute the glue on the fabric.
4. Position the light-wash patches over the knee area on the dark-wash jeans and press firmly.
5. Make sure the pieces are completely dried and adhered before you pick them up.
6. Wait 72 hours before washing them—and remember to turn the jeans inside out first!
