"Ses jeans sont plein de trous, c'est normal?" Could be all of her jeans, yes? Not just one pair? Or did I mess that up grammatically?

Joelle409337: Well, one has to assume that if she goes with the current fad/style, all of her jeans have holes in them.

Why not 'des trous'?

It's plein de not plein des.

… and they are not "the holes".

In American English the word "jeans" is always a plural. These are my jeans, not these is my jeans whether one pair or multiple pairs.
