hey y'all

i have a pair of wide-ish leg jeans that i want to turn into skinny jeans
but the last time i did that, at the point where i started sewing them in - there was like a funny fold thing
i'm not sure how to explain  Huh
like if you were making a t shirt slimmer, and you didn't sew around the sleeves to make them skinnier too, there'd be a gap ..kind of..

has anyone experienced this when pegglegging their jeans?

i don't want to take them apart at the seams - because my machine doesn't really handle thick fabrics well Cheesy

sounds like your taper is not smooth.  you have to taper on both sides of the leg or the pants will twist.

here is a tutorial on this:
