1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Flared Jeans into skinny jeans with tute! EDIT: PLENTY OF PICS ALONG WITH STEPS! on: February 14, 2010 12:39:06 PM
just used this tute to turn an unused pair of flares into perfect skinnies.  didn't realize how long ago this was posted until i started looking through the other comments -- nice staying power!

thanks for the part about the bumpy knee.  when it happened to me, instead of being all, WTF KNEE BUMP!?!?! i was like, oh, that's what she was talking about!  i can fix this....

for some of the other people who posted about having problems with the new seam not staying, i just did a zig-zag stitch to kind of "finish" the edge that i cut.  i haven't washed them yet, but i think that's the next best thing to serging the cut edge.

also, as for the inside seam vs. outside seam issue, i think that it really depends on which side has the over-stitching in the original jeans.  going with the side without over-stitching makes it a lot simpler, but if you don't mind having to re-do the over-stitching then taking some in from both the inner and outer seams would probably be ideal.

thanks again for the tute!

very cute!  your pictures always crack me up; you can tell you're having a lot of fun.  Smiley 

also, i've noticed those shoes in other posts too, and i love them - what are they? 

hope all goes well with your surgery and you're back to creating and posting in no time!

that dress is amazing!  i can't even imagine how much time and effort must have gone into making it.  the hats, too, are pretty cool.  i especially like your model-head thingy (blanking on a better word).  good luck with the job hunt!
