As you may know, I’m taking part in The Love What You Wear Project this year and I’ve filed away a few things, from around the blogosphere, that I thought might come in handy along the way. Throughout April I’ll share some of them with you.
I was in need of a new pair of jeans and of course I cannot just stroll into Gap and pick up my favourite Curvy Low Rise. Apparently they have stopped producing them anyway, so I’ll be in search of the perfect pair again at the end of the year. I found some in a charity shop that are not a bad fit, but they are too long for little old me.
I’ve taken up jeans in the past and always hated the look of the hem afterwards. It also makes it totally obvious that they’ve been altered. Now I’ve found a solution and it’s really simple. The ‘how to’ along with plenty of pictures (always useful) can be found at Just Something I Made.
If you haven’t got a pair of jeans that needs shortening, or you’re just not that into sewing, it’s still worth checking the site out for Cathe’s other crafty ideas and lots of free printables. And if you are into sewing, then pop back on Monday when I’ll have a post all about The Great British Sewing Bee. Are you watching?
