Reuse, Reduce and Recycle your #AEOStyle! To celebrate Earth Day, we spoke to Sr. Stylist, Coco Yokoyama, about her tips and tricks for turning her old AEO gear into something new. Check out her step by step guide for repurposing a pair of denim with an old scarf. The best part about this project — it’s only five easy, earth-friendly steps!
Materials You’ll Need:
- Pair denim pants
- Fusible fabric tape
- Scarf or other fabric
- Tape measure
- Tracing pencil or marker
Measure the length you’d like your shorts, then cut.
The fabric will begin fraying where you cut, pull the strands to encourage fraying, then run shorts through the washer and dryer. This will accelerate fraying and make them look vintage.
Place fabric on top of shorts and trace the size of the front panel, around the pocket. Leave a bit of room on the bottom for more fraying to occur.
Follow the instructions on the fusible fabric tape to adhere fabric to shorts
Admire you’re new denim shorties!
