While I was looking through some topics here, I found a good idea.
I use to wear these (very baggy with lots of fabric) pants to school before 'skinny's' were in fashion but i still wanted to sometimes wear them and didnt really want to throw them away,
so then i found out i could peg them I was so excited!
Here are some photos (I dont have any mid-cutting up though)...
One leg pegged VS oringal leg:
[^you can the white thread at the hem, beacause I couldn't find any black,
but you can't see it on the inside seam, which is good^]
This is what they ended up as:
*EDIT - Tute:*
1. Put them on inside out.
2. From the knee down (you can go higher if there's extra room in the thigh area), pin close to your leg, so they fit as tight as you want.
3. Now take the pants off and you can either cut of the extra fabric and sew the new seam (as I did) or you sew where you've pinned trying to match up your stitches with the stitches already on the pants so you don't get funky looking folds on the outside of your pants. you can trim off the extra fabric from the flare now, too.
So its pretty easy, just like taking in a shirt I guess,
Hope it helps some people (Hellosunshine) lol
What you people think?
