Skinny Jeans DIY

Do you have a old pair of flare jeans that fit you perfectly but wont wear because of the flare? 
Well I do... or  I did. 
I was going through my closet and came across these old, light blue jeans that I just love but had stopped wearing because they were flared at the bottom. My sister had the same problem so we came up with a solution to turn your old flare jeans into new skinny jeans.

What you need:
Pair of flare jeans
Pair of skinny pants
Sewing machine (if you are really keen you can hand sew but I would recommend using a sewing machine)

1. Start out by turning both pairs of pants inside out. Lay your flare jeans out on a flat surface making sure that there are no bumps from the knee down.
2. Take a pin and mark where the knee part of your jeans are, you do not want to start sewing any higher then this spot

3. Lay your skinny pants on top of your jeans matching up the outside hems together

4. Pin along the inside seam on your flare jeans but following the line of the pants on top. 

 5. Sew along the pinned line making the line as straight as you can so that you don't cause any puckering
6. Try on your pants and if they fit turn them back inside out and carefully trim off the excess material. If they
 are not skinny enough at the bottom for your liking you repeat steps 3-6 until you are satisfied. 

7.Enjoy your new skinny jeans :)
