Pinning the sides...
2 After wearing these Gap gray shorts the other day, I had to fix them up! They were a bit too baggy for me on the bottom when I rolled them up so I did a simple little sewing trick... I just overlapped an inch from the outside and tacked that sucker down. Now I can roll it without the extra bagginess. As you can see compared to the first picture, it looks a lot slimmer at the bottom...and no more peek-a-boo Gs!
3 I thrifted these yellow jeans a couple of weeks ago and they were way too long (or I am too short) and more of a straight-leg than skinny jeans. So I hemmed them and took the sides in around my ankles.
I first turned the jeans inside out and traced the outline of my other skinny jeans with some left over at the bottom to hem. Sewed along that line. Cut off any excess fabric. Hemmed the bottoms and done!
I can't wait to bust these babies out this summer!!! My first pair of colored jeans! I'm so cool now.
Pssst...don't forget to enter to win this cute, ruffly, modest one-piece swimsuit!
