Make sure the jeans are ironed and free from wrinkles.
Apply the painters tape to the side of your jeans about 2 inches wide. My jeans already had a panel so I didn't have to do any measuring.
Pour the paint in the bowl and begin applying the paint to the jeans. If you use acrylic paint, mix it with the textile medium before painting. This is so the paint area won't be stiff and hard. I used the same shade paint as my jeans because I wanted a subtle stripe versus a stark contrast.
Let paint dry. A hour should be good enough. Repeat on other side. If necessary, apply another coat of paint. I applied a coat of clear gloss varnish to make it shine and stand out a little more since it was kind of blending in.
You can also create the tuxedo stripe look by applying a 1- 2 inch wide ribbon of your choice to the sides of your jeans with glue, adhesive tape or by sewing it on.
What do you think about tuxedo stripe pants/jeans? Will you be making yourself a pair?
