DIY Racing Stripe Jeans

I spied a pair of Rag & Bone jeans with a coolest black racer-line down the sides and instantly coveted them. Of course since I rarely wear jeans the price for those was unacceptable so I decided to DIY something similar. I bought these red jeans ages ago but never got around to wearing them, so it seemed about time to try that idea out and maybe finally wear those pants!
What you’ll need:
-fabric paint
-painter’s tape
-sponge brush
-a narrow piece of cardboard
Start by laying your jeans flat; I inserted a piece of cardboard into the leg I was working on first to make sure my surface would be flat and the paint would apply evenly without bleeding through to the other side. Next tape down the outline you want to paint--after that you’re set and you can begin painting. I applied one coat of paint to one leg then left it to dry for two hours. Repeat on the other leg and you have a snazzy new pair of jeans to wear out.

Lovely idea! Does the colour stay on when you wash it?
