I also have this pair of jeans (one of the few that actually fits the hips that birthed a baby 5 weeks ago, not to mention the muffin top left by my 9.1 pounder!)- said pair of jeans was purchased circa 2003. With about a month's worth of earnings from my college job (I pretty much didn't go out or grocery shop this particular month. Well, I probably went out- but most likely didn't grocery shop. But I digress)....
Anyway, they weren't cheap, they still fit amazing, and they're ssssoooo soft. The downside? They're mom jeans a decade later. (Shutters at the thought) I can't go out and drop a bunch of my hubs' hard earned cash on every latest style of jeans in this particular brand every time it tickles my fancy (mom phrase- shutters again), so I got proactive. Enter pins, scissors, and sewing machine. And leap of faith in my non-existent sewing skillz. Here's how it turned out. Not much of a tutorial bc anyone attempting this with a sewing machine will already know what I did, ha! (I can't caption the photos since I'm blogging from my phone- but *hopefully* you can tell the BEFORE and AFTER!)
Note: The left pant leg is rolled up to show you these can be worn as skinny jeans or skinny boyfriends. Not trying to start some bizarre trend here. :)
Another Note: Please excuse the closet mess.
