At this very moment as I am typing this is it 7pm my time on a Saturday night. I have had a less then relaxing day, and I am SO HAPPY to be here...blogging. ;)
Back to the post! Of course coloured skinny jeans have been everywhere this season. I have loved them from the moment I seen 'em, but didn't want to pay for them since I knew they would be a "trend" and out the next season probably. So I did it the cheap way!
I went to a local Salvation Army and found these white, wide legged pants from Old Navy for $2.99! I knew I wanted them coloured, and skinny so I went to work.
Here is how they fit before I started.
I started by dying the pants....after three times trying to use green and realizing it was only whitener and brightener, I bought teal and got it right. HA! Read the labels people, read the labels. When they were done with color, I turned them inside out and laid my skinny jeans on top of them.
I pinned down the legs the length where they needed to be cut down and sewn to make them skinny.
Cut off the excess material.
I sewed a zig zag stitch, and then went right down the outside of that with a straight stitch. I just wanted to make sure it held since I don't have a surger.
Here is the finished look! As always, don't pay attention to my awkwardness. Hopefully I will get more comfortable with pictures of myself for the blog.
And since my little girl just had to take a picture as well, here is hers. ;)
I love my new coloured skinny jeans! Even if they did wind up costing me the price of new ones after my dying fiasco. HA!
I like to party over here!
