Making skinny jeans

I tried out this tutorial I found on Pinterest on how to make flare jeans into skinny jeans and I love how it turned out!
 I made these jeans (that I already owned) into skinny jeans and I made another pair of jeans (that I also already owned) into straight-leg jeans and now I feel like I have two new pairs of jeans and it cost absolutely nothing! 
To make it even better it was super fast and easy.
The tutorial is here.


  1. You are so adorable! My goodness, those jeans look great. :):)

  2. I'm so jealous of your mad skills

  3. The link to the tutorial is no longer there...shame!

    1. Oh, thanks for pointing that out! The tutorial I used was almost exactly like one that Merrick has on her blog: The only difference is that I used a pair of skinny jeans I already owned and laid them out on top of the jeans I wanted to fix (both inside-out) and I marked with a pen, based on the skinny jeans, where I should sew the seam on the flare jeans to make them skinny as well. Hopefully that made sense!

    2. And this tutorial of hers is even better:
