DIY Hand Painted Jeans

There was an inspiration picture of some jeans that was posted on my sewing group that I fell absolutely IN LOVE with.  I decided to create them on my own using fabric paint and frog tape from JoAnns...

I used the same jeans that I used to create my wide leg white pants then placed a skinny pair on top for draft the legs to make a skinny version without any back pockets and a side zipper.


After cutting the front and back pieces, it was time to taper the legs

The back..

After the adjustments for the width of my legs were made, I was ready to cut out the inner part of my jeans there were not to be panted.  I started 4 inches from the side seam of the fron leg and drafted down the the bottom.  I cut this piece out and layed it on top of the other fron leg to duplicate.

Next, I taped off the already I wanted paint.  Below is my first attempt that went horribly wrong.

Frog tape is HIGHLY recommended when painting fabrics.... I learned this the hard way.  I got the right tape and created a new pattern... I used spare cardboard this time to paint as well. 

The instructions for fabric paint calls for (4) hours of drying.  I only waited 1 1/2 with a fan blowing on the fabric before I took the tape off and sewn the pieces together.  Results below.

I had to take the smallest paint brush I had and evened up some of the edges. Other than that I was VERY pleased with the outcome and cant wait to do it again. 
The remainder of the construction of these pants were completed as per normal pants construction.  I did add the front pockets as I did in my other (2) jeans pictorials. 
The next steps are join the front pcs that were cut off.  Attach the front and back pcs, sew the crotch, add the waistband, and lastly the side zipper.  Dont forget to serge your edges!!! I hope you like!!!!
