It must be the weather warming up combined with my need for shorts that brought me to this point today. I have a bin full of jeans that I haven't worn in a while for whatever reason, but that I couldn't part with just yet. So I went rummaging in there today and pulled out three pairs of jeans that were once very loved.
Left to right:
1. Joe's Jeans-worn out and they had a huge coffee stain on the legs
2. Paper Denim and Cloth-sooooo soft but the pant legs were too short for me
3. Citizens of Humanity-hardly worn because they were too short
I grabbed my scissors and started cutting. I compare this experience to that of ripping off a band-aid. The faster you do it the better it feels. I varied the lengths and actually like the middle one's in the picture above the best.
I may be the only one but I could care less about the size of my clothes as long as I like the way they fit me. For example, I usually like my jeans and skirts to hang lower on my hips so sometimes I have to go up a few sizes to get the desired "hang" ha!
This was so fun and easy to do! I am excited that these pants have a new lease on life, I have shorts, and that I will use the pieces I cut off for some other craft down the road.
