here is a great blog that shows how. Sometimes i dont use the zig-zag stitch it just depends on the kind of hem i want.
Then there were the jeans. Lauryn loved these jeans but just isn't into flares anymore. She had them in here 'donate' bag but i told her we could turn them into skinny jeans no problem!
Basically what i did was take a pair of her favorite skinny jeans and use that as my guide to get the right leg fit for her. I took from the inside (many tutorials say to do outside but i find inside is easier and its less important because you dont have to take out the finishing stitch unless you care that much).
always iron everything before you even start! I ironed them the right way and then inside out.
Today on facebook I also just announced my FIRST contest. EVERY month of my blog i will be doing a giveaway. The only way to enter is to COMMENT on my blog posts. You enter once by commenting once. Each day can have a maximum of one entry! So for example this September you can comment 30 times for 30 entries into the contest (September 1-30th). I will announce what the giveaway is a day before the end of the month and the last day of the month (at midnight) i will randomly select a commentor for the giveaway! I hope to get some good feedback and input on what YOU are doing in the slow fashion world with this! Email me if you have questions firstname.lastname@example.org
