I'd almost write all over them or something to that effect to make them blend with the other denim..

I say try the coordinating pockets. It definitely has potential I think. At least, *I* would wear them that way LOL. Of course, my sense of style may be different than others! :-)

OMG!  I wish I could've seen this like a year ago.  This totally happened to my favoritest pair of jeans and I was quite upset.  I'll have to keep this in mind next time it happens. haha  I think they look really good.  I'd totally wear them everywhere.  But I like it when people stare  Cheesy

I like the idea of adding a stripe on the outside seam as well...it will balance better...awesome idea....

if you dont want the contrast look, you could dye the whole thing dark denim.  i like to dye my jeans.

Perhaps a better salvage of those jeans is to cut it off at the crotch and turn it into one of those tiered skirts as described here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=118907.0.

You'd have a nice fit at the waist, a good looking skirt, and not have to bother with all that innerseam and coordinating pocket business  Cool

Sometimes it's easier to let go of a beloved garment if you know it has another life waiting for it.

I think the dye idea is awesome, denim dyes SOOOO well :-) Just use extra dye and cook it extra long....I have never tried the washer method since I have a front loader...but have excellent results with RIT and the stovetop.  They would be all one color....and look fabu....

Otherwise I really like the idea of bringing it together by adding more of the contrasting color.

Awesome idea though.  I too have to discard pants cause of the inner thigh rub.  and I hate it.  One reason I love denim is that at least it does not do the inner thigh pill up and look tacky  Undecided

that's what I did!  Early this year, I didn't want to lose those favorite jeans so I took some sheer fabric that I had purchased at $1 a yard years ago (at $1 a yard I'll buy just about anything  Wink ), gathered it and Ta-Da!  beautiful skirt!  I got lots of compliments on it.  

The funny part is that I was car-less at the time and so hadn't been to a store in about 5 months.  I made the skirt and a month later went to target and the mall for the first time and saw skirts like it everywhere.  I was so excited that for once I was actually "in"  Smiley

Ok, I really, really like it.  I think the idea is brilliant and it's giving me all sorts of crazy ideas of my own.  Like exactly what you've done here, but with many pieces making up the legs, not just two.  Like strips of our favorite jeans turned into a pair or two of some really cool jeans made with different colors of denim.

Or hell, even just two colors.  I really like the contrast, just not the colors themselves.  And I think the contrast would work better in general broken up instead of both colors clumped together on one side.

But, you know what?  Take this with a grain of salt.  I'm an art student, not a fashionista.  I'm prone to 'weird' clothing choices as it is Smiley

oh man, I have the same problem - two pairs of jeans are sitting at my house with the thighs busted through.

I think in this case, since you used a lighter fabric on the inside and a darker on the outside, it's not the best look.

but they might make a great jean skirt . . .
