DIY White Paint Patterned Jeans

Today wraps up Part 4 of my clothing mini series and I think I’ve saved the best for last!  Everywhere I turn, I have been seeing painted clothing making a come back – from the late 80’s paint splatter look to a patterned painted technique.  I will be honest, I am really loving all of them when done the right way!  Today I am sharing my DIY White Paint Patterned Jeans.  I wore them all day yesterday and they are such fun.

Now these steps are about as simple as they come.

Mix your textile medium per the directions with your white acrylic paint.  Then, paint dash patterns onto your entire jean front.

I broke the painting into sections so I did the right leg from waist to knee and then did the left leg from waist to knee.  Then, I did the lower portion.  I wanted to make sure I had a consistent “organic” pattern through the jean.

I tried keeping most of the dashes vertical but had them wiggle a little bit throughout so it was not all perfectly going up and down.

I love the movement and uniqueness of these jeans!  And pairing them with a more structured plaid top is a fun way to wear them.

These jeans were on sale at Old Navy so it was easier for me to give them a little facelift!
