Materials Used

  • Pins
  • Scissors or Razor
  • Sewing Machine or Hand Sew
  • Optional: Transparent Thread
  • Thread (that matches denim color preferably)
  • Zippers of your choice from Walmart or your local craft store. The long one is 7 inches and the short one is 4 inches. In this DIY, I used the 7 inch one

Start by trying on the jeans.

Mark the jeans where you would like the slit to be. I did mine dead center on my knee.

Cut along the line you made and slide the zipper in, any way you want. After you slide it in, fold over the raw edge and pin that one side into place.

Straight stitch sew the zipper and make sure to keep a nice gap.
