One of my most clicked on links has been for making your own skinny jeans.
I made some last November that I am still wearing today.
When my daughter complained about only having one pair of jeans that she liked (super skinny jeans from Abercrombie and Fitch), I thought I would help her make a pair of her existing jeans into skinny jeans. This is what we ended up with. Ready to make some?
Here they are before. She really liked the color, just not the fit.
We start by turning the jeans inside out and putting them back on.
Then we pulled the jeans on each side and pinned them down each leg
Here they are all pinned.
Then I take a sharpie marker and make a line on the outside of the pins. I just free handed the line, since her jeans were small. If you are making some for yourself, you may want to use a ruler to make the line straight.
I sewed up each side on the line. Easy as that!
The true test? She wore them to school today so I think she likes them!
