Mom Jeans

Hey Everyone! Today I have a quick refashion for you! I found these boot leg mom jeans at a thrift store and decided to try the mom jeans trend that seems to be everywhere recently. I have been quite hesitant because I remember my mom wearing these from when they were in trend last time and I absolutely hated them. I knew that I wanted to narrow the leg and I had to make a new hem on the bottom. It was my mistake for not trying them on in the store, but when I got home I realized that the previous owner had hemmed them and they were slightly short on me. For this refashion I simply seam ripped out the previous hem on the bottom, made a straight stitch from the thigh to the ankle, and remade a bottom hem. If you would like to see more photos or about the process I have just created a blog about my refashions. It's still rather new and has limited content but feel free to take a look! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Valentine's Day and happy refashioning!

I like them. Cute heels too!

Much better now! I have long legs and tend to find lots of thrifted jeans that fit great but are too short. My solution is usually to skinnify them and cuff them up, just like you did. They look great!
