Our most lived-in summer piece was actually our most lived-in winter item... When hole-y, worn-through jeans reach the ends of their lives, we like to get all DIY, and turn them into a pair of jean cutoffs. This ubiquitous summer short may look effortless, but anyone who's taken a pair of scissors to a pant knows that one mis-snip can lead to a pair of denim diapers. We turned to DIY goddess Daniela Jacobs who created three styles of cut-offs from three old pair of denim she had. Tune in to find out how to extend the lifespan of your favorite jeans. Now grab those shears!
