Last year's trend is enhanced this year with a little sparkle.
Last year's trend for distressed denim shorts and hotpants is enhanced this year with a little sparkle. Sanded to reveal patches of wear, this season's trend adds flat-backed jewels to bring you glittering
glamour. All you need is your Dremel multi-tool and Versatip soldering iron, and you'll be stepping out in sexy beach style this Summer. Simply follow our step-by-step guide below and don't blame us
for all the attention you'll get!
Fit your Dremel 300 multi-tool with the sanding band & mandrel. Slide the piece of scrap wood into the pocket to support the area you wish to work on and protect the layers of fabric beneath. Use it to create a worn effect on the edges of pockets and on some of the seams, re-positioning the scrap of wood as necessary.
Slide the scrap of wood down the inside of the shorts, positioning it behind each area you are going to work on. Take your multi-tool and sanding band, then distress patches of the fabric in rough patches to create the on-trend worn areas of the moment. You can also use a different grit to get smoother effects. Sand down to reveal the threads of the cloth and continue until the desired effect is achieved.
