Sharpies are now made in quite a few colors so you may be able to find a match - or close.

  • If you use a darker color you can lighten it some with a cloth dipped in vinegar - just smear it on the line and into surrounding area.
  • You do not say if this is for a male or female but if for a female then you could try adding a strip of lace or other material.
  • If you visit one of the big craft stores in your area, I feel sure they would have lots of suggestions.
  • You mentioned dying... This is not an easy task and there is no guarantee that your line will not still be lighter than the rest of the jeans.

I would be really bold and glue with" Washable Fabric Glue " a 1/2 inch wide piece of ribbon all around the white line, if you like try and match the color of the jeans OR being really daring use a pretty light color ribbon.

You can use a matching sharpie and draw over the line.
