Too Much Bell In The Bottom

Hello and Happy Thursday. My project today was a pair of jeans. I found them at a clothes swap and they were magical. They fit like a dream. They were comfortable but also held my tummy in. How? I don't know, I just stood in awe of my fabulous find. There was a slight problem.

They are way too long and way too full at the bottom. They were extreme boot cut, if that is a thing. That is my tip toe, I would need to wear mega heels to make the length work for me.

I narrowed and shortened them. I didn't get rid of the boot cut style, I just calmed it down a little.

The end product is perfect for me and my boots.

Thanks you for reading, now go make something fabulous for yourself.

I have the same issue with jeans and pants too! I love it when I find pants that fit me like a glove and make my butt look amazing, but the length has always been an issue for me. For as long as I can remember I've always needed to hem my pants and jeans. Great job on your magical find.
