NYLON staffers created unique, DIY projects using denim in honor of our annual Denim Issue. Check back here every day of August to see a new project. 

What you’ll need:
Seam ripper
Pair of dark wash jeans

Directions:
Step 1: Use your seam ripper to ease into the stitches of one of the two back pockets (it's going to take some time as pockets are sewn on very well).

Step 2: Once you have a good amount of the stitches out, you can start to carefully rip up the pocket as the thread is loose enough.

Step 3: Do the same to the other side. Using a dark wash pair of jeans will help make the pocket more noticeable when you take it off as the wash of the jean is different underneath the pocket.

Step 4: Enjoy!
