Three Tries to Taper White Cords

#66 Back to School Wardrobe
REFLECTIONS: My goal of no shopping this year encouraged gradual changes to keep these too long boot cut cords in the wardrobe rotation.
  • Hemmed last year, but still too long and too wide in the leg. 
  • Each time I wore them I ran a seam to tighten the boot cut legs. 
  • Did not go to a true slim leg.  
  • Finally a width / length I am comfortable with.
BEFORE: From the closet. 
  • Too long / boot cut white cords. 
  • Have had several years, with limited wear.
STEPS:
  • Open hem enough to run a seam on inside / outside legs. Serge.
  • Repeated several weeks until comfortable with cut / length.
AFTER: Light weight white cords. 
  • My year of shopping the closet forced me to be more creative in wardrobe combinations. 
  • I have worn these cords more this year than before.
AFTER: 3rd trim off boot cut.
Not slim cut. Just right 

for professional school days.

AFTER: 3rd trim off boot cut.

I love white cords/jeans. I have worn things and decided to keep refashioning as I wore them through the day. Sometimes that is the only way to decide if they really fit. The 3rd time was the charm for you. They look great.
