I have learned to embrace the skinny jean. It only took me a few years! And in fact with the right top they can be quite flattering on most body types.
I found these Seven for all Mankind jeans at the Goodwill Outlets store for $2, (whoo hoo) retail price $150!
Only one problem.....
Yeah, what a shame right?
But I knew I could refashion them and since they were far to long for me I could make them work. So here is how I refashioned them into skinny jeans.
I tried them on inside out and I pinned down the inside seam (CAREFULLY) tapering down to the bottom hem.
Then I (CAREFULLY) took them off and adjusted the pins into a nice line.
Next I sewed them from crotch to hem, tapering down the leg.
Cut excess fabric.
Hem them to the length you perfer. I wanted the option to roll up the bottoms for summer, so mine hit my ankle.
What do you think? This only took me 20 minutes in all!
