How to Cut Your Judy Blue Jeans: A DIY Guide

Darlings, there's no better feeling than slipping into a pair of perfectly fitting Judy Blue jeans, but sometimes, you just want to take your denim game to the next level! Whether it's for that sassy, new look you've been dreaming about or just to show off those killer heels, or just to shorten them, we've got you covered. Get ready to learn how to cut your Judy Blue jeans and create a denim masterpiece that'll make heads turn.

Tools & Materials - Let's Get Crafty!

Before we dive into the denim magic, you'll need a few things to make your fashion dreams come true:
  1. Judy Blue jeans: Pick a pair that you need to shorten or add some fun details to
  2. A ruler or measuring tape: Get your measurements spot on, darling.
  3. Chalk or fabric marker: To mark your territory and make the cutting lines.
  4. Scissors: Make sure they're sharp enough to slice through denim like butter.
  5. Pins or clips: Keep things in place as you work your magic.
  6. A sewing machine (optional): To give your cut edges a neat finish.
  7. Iron and ironing board (optional): Press those seams for a polished look.

Step 1: Measure and Decide

Time to channel your inner fashionista! Put on your Judy Blues, darling. Decide where you want to cut – ankle-length? Capris? Bermuda shorts? Get your inner designer vibes on and measure from the waist down to your ideal hemline. Don't forget to leave a little extra for the hem if you're planning to sew it.

Step 2: Get Sassy with Marking

Once you've determined the length that screams your name, it's time to mark the cutting lines. Use chalk or a fabric marker to boldly claim your territory! Measure from the crotch seam to your desired length and mark it in several spots along the leg. Precision is key, my fashion-forward friend.

Step 3: Slice, Slice, Baby!

Now, it's time for the fun part – the big reveal! Grab those scissors and cut along those marked lines. Remember, darling, straight lines are the name of the game. If you're feeling a little edgy, create a distressed look by using sandpaper or a cheese grater on the edges. Distress 'em like you mean it!

Step 4: Va-Va-Voom Fitting

With your scissors down, it's time to strike a pose! Try on your newly cut Judy Blues and marvel at your handiwork. If you want a little more off the top, go for it. Just remember, you can always cut more, but adding it back? Not so easy, darling.

Step 5: Fancy Hemming (Optional)

For that haute couture look, consider hemming your jeans. Fold the raw edge up to your desired hem length, pin it in place, and stitch it up with a sewing machine. If you're feeling crafty and don't have a sewing machine, hand-sew a chic hem – no one will even know you did it yourself! 

Step 6: The Final Flourish

The last step, darlings! Give your jeans a quick press with an iron to smooth out any wrinkles and make them look runway-ready. Now, you're officially the designer of your very own customized Judy Blue jeans. Style them like a rock star with your favorite top, shoes, and accessories, and show the world your unique fashion flair!


Cutting your Judy Blue jeans can be a playful and fabulous DIY project to help cut to your length. Measure, mark, and cut with style, and don't be afraid to get a little sassy with your denim dreams. With creativity, the right tools, and a sprinkle of sass, you can transform your jeans into a dazzling fashion statement that's as unique as you are. Strut your stuff and wear your custom denim with pride, darling! You're officially a fashionista extraordinaire!
