Did you realize that you can turn a pair of boot-cut jeans into skinny jeans with very little effort? Really, you can!
I bought these jeans at least seven years ago. You can tell by the color that I rarely wore them because they were just a bit too short. They were in the Goodwill bag when I had a light bulb moment….change them to skinny jeans.
The “how-to” for this project is easy. Turn your jeans inside out and put them on. Pin down the side where you want your new seams to go. After pinning, use a marker to make a sewing line. I did all of this while wearing the jeans.
It will look like this when you take your jeans off.
Sew along each seam. I did this twice to make sure that the seams would be strong.
Cut off the excess fabric.
Serge the edge or if you are like me and don’t have a serger, run a zig-zag stitch along the edge. Turn inside out and enjoy your free skinny jeans!
I’m sharing this project for Metamorphosis Monday at Susan’s Between Naps on the Porch and for the Weekend Wrap-Up party at Tatertots and Jello.
