Hello Refashion Co-op. This was supposed to be such a simple thing. I just wanted to cut these jeans into shorts. I did that but struggled with the fit. The waist was good but the hips were awful. My mommy pouch looked 20 lbs bigger. The backside was just as bad.
I thought it was a lost cause but tried to take some bulk out from the sides. I didn't think my machine could sew through heavy denim. And if it could would the new seam hold together?
I sewed down each side and dodged between the rivets here.
They fit and I am glad I kept trying. It took me about a week, much longer than I planned.
