Clothes on an Even Keel

Introducing My Star Jeans!

Audrey Branam

I'm so glad to introduce my one of a kind Star Jeans! These are upcycled, reworked jeans, often found in distressed condition.  From there, I add on my handmade star patches, made from scrap denim.  These are a truly low-waste item, extending the life of jeans that could otherwise go to waste, and reusing scrap denim that would almost certainly go to waste otherwise- for the current batch, the only new material involved is the thread!

 I trace, sew and cut out my star patches by hand.  From there, I arrange them on the selected pair of denim, placing them strategically on the jeans to reenforce weak points and for looks.

From there, I securely stitch the stars on, and a one-of-kind pair of Star Jeans are complete and ready to go!  Thank you so much for reading, please feel free to contact me with any questions or requests, and take a look at my shop!
