Styling Tips:
1. If slashes have created too much ease, the dryer cycle should help shrink the fit back into place.
2. For less precise slashes, start the cut and tear by hand.
3. These slashed skinnies look great with ANYTHING!

    Lay Jeans flat on a table.

    Note where you want the first slash to begin (try them on prior to beginning). Mark slash points at side seam with non- wax chalk or a marker if desired. Looks best when slashes on right/left legs are not symmetrical but haphazard or arbitrary.

    Step 3

    Insert scissor tip in front of side seam and cut or slash (carefully) from one end to the other. Note that every slash adds ease and slashing the side seam will dramatically alter the fit.

I have a pair of too-small jeans, might try this on them. I'm never going to wear them again otherwise, so doesn't matter if I screw up xx
