Baggy jeans may flatter some people, like those who are taller then 5 foot 3 inches - but for munchkin sized me I need tighter fitting jeans to create the lovely illusion that I am actually somewhat tall. Plus I just love the tighter style of organic denim so that I can pair them with some second hand boots flawlessly. This is an easy, quick, and fun tutorial on how to magically make your blah jeans into club jumping hot pants! WHAT YOU WILL NEED: ill fitting jeans, straight pins, simple sewing skills, thread, and maybe a friend to help with pinning. STEP ONE: Turn your baggies inside out and then put them back on that way. (Please excuse my really messy house in the pictures, I am packing to move. Also, meet my good friend & neighbor Heather who helped me - I just love her!) STEP TWO: Have your friend help you put straight pins down the outside seam of both legs. You want it to be almost form fitting but leave enough room to get in and out of them. My jeans are 100% organic cotton with no stretch so it was better to leave a little extra room. STEP THREE: Sew along the lines created with the pins, with the jeans still inside out. STEP FOUR: Flip the jeans back to the right side and try them on before cutting out any extra fabric created by the seam. And check out the saucy AFTER shots of my new DIY organic skinny jeans!!! .............................. YAY! Now I need to go walk to the health food grocery and show these hotties off! :) XOXO
