I'm using this wonderful tutorial to refurbish a pair of jeans. http://www.ebsqart.com/artMagazine/za_572.htm
I did my first recon jean skirt about 30 years ago, but my memory and the tutorial don't help me with one problem I have. What do I do with the back seams? On the front, the old seams, as you can see in the step 5 & step 7 photos, are nicely turned the way they were on the original garments. The back, however (no picture shows this), has the inside seams that are not nice looking. Should I turn under the seams on the new fabric to try to recreate the look of the traditional jeans seams? Should I jut place the right sides of the jeans and fabric together to create "regular" seams? I hope I'm coherent in my questions
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.
