i have this pair of jeans that were my moms and they now sorta fit me. but she used them as her painting jeans so they have some paint splatterson them and a couple rips and holes in them and i really like them. but, seeing as she probably wore her jeans a different way than i do. haha.(i wear them down low on my hips, she wore them up high) so, i can roll the waistband down on the jeans so they're low enough, but the thigh area is too big. i want to make it more fit, but the hole/rip is on the knee, and i don't wanna mess that up too much. also, i don't want it to look sorta ruffly near the waistband...is there anyway to make the legs smaller, and the waistband lower? thankss!
