It's a happy day when you fit into jeans that you've been waiting for YEARS to fit again.
But it's a sad day when you realize they are grossly out of style . . . and maybe *ahem* they were even out of style the last time you wore them.
|Start with your wretched flares . . .|
|Try them on inside-out.|
|Remove jeans and mark pins with a highlighter|
|Remove pins, and use a ruler to connect your pin|
dashes--make the line as straight as you can
[Only YOU can prevent forest fires]
|Sew over the line, be sure to backstitch several times at both ends.|
|And sew a second seam alongside the first . . .|
|Here's how it looks before cutting . . .|
|Cut away the flare, not too close to the seam|
|Fold your sewn and cut leg over the "un-sewn" one. I used my iron |
on this step to make sure the legs were completely the same.
|Cut the"un-sewn" pant leg. Then sew a double seam up the side.|
|Try those puppies on!|
|Totally got these cuties at Deseret Industries|
|I don't care if light-colored jeans are out.|
I love 'em.
