So one bored morning I destroyed a denim shirt.Here’s how to destroy yours.
This is a lightly distressed shirt from NastyGal. I felt like destroying the shoulders but you can destroy any areas.
YOU SHOULD USE:
Safety pins (optional)
On a hard surface rub the pointed side of the grater on the denim. Keep the material pulled taught and rub the grater in one direction away from you.
While distressing the front shoulder area I noticed a darker layer underneath. If you get the same shirt or another look out for it. Snip it open with scissors and rip the top layer off with your hands if the shirt is soft enough to expose the darker denim underneath. Use scissors if the denim is tough.
Flip the shirt to the back and remove the top layer of denim again around the back of the shoulders to expose that darker denim underneath. If your shirt doesn’t have that top layer then skip this part.
Once a denim area is destroyed enough with the grater use your hands to rip open the shredded holes in the denim.
Here is the finished back view.
Note: You can add safety pins to close up over zealous rips like I did on one sleeve.
This one is pretty destroyed on the shoulders which is what I wanted. On yours you can continue further down or leave as is.DIY a cheap denim jacket like this one or a denim shirt for a practice run.
