i realized my jeans look like silly bellbottoms so over the past three or four days i've probably straight-legged like eight pairs of jeans. i just put them on inside out and safety pin where i want to sew. sorry all the pics are sideways! you get the idea


before. i pulled the excess fabric out to show how much there was


another before just to show how much they covered my feet!


after! this is a really bad angle but i like how the lower legs look


another after pic. i like fixing jeans like this because you can't buy them in stores exactly how you like them! they are either super skinny or too straight through the knee

it was really easy. the only problem is the inner leg seam looks funny but oh well.

Really good job! I do this to every pair of jeans I buy.
What did you mean by the inside seam looks funny? Did you use the seam that is thicker and has the two rows of stitching? (don't know the technical term, sorry Smiley)
I always go for the seam that does not look like that, just because it ends up almost looking like it was meant to be like that, depending on the fade of the jean! Just helpin' you out, because I know how frustrating it is!

i do this to every pair of jeans too!
i always sew up the inside seam, just because it is less noticable;
and the outside seam is usually very thick;
and i have a very, very, basic cheap sewing machine.

the inside seam looks funny in that.. on my thighs, it is the same as when i bought them, and then it just fades into a regular seam from my sewing machine when it gets to my knee. but i don't mind  Cheesy
