Jean re-fashion (part 2)

Ry-pie is turning 3 this summer, yet this little girl can still wear 18 month sizes. These size 18 months jeans fit her great in the waist, but are a little bit on the short side. Since the weather has been fantastic, I figured the easiest fix was to make them into capris.

I shortened her jeans by just rolling the hem up twice.

I hand-sewed a button to the outside cuff, making sure to secure the fold.

I tacked the opposite side of the cuff, so it wouldn't roll down at all.

And that was it! Easy capris to enjoy in this ridiculously beautiful weather!

I hope your weather has been great too!

Jean re-fashion

I've had these tiny little jeans hanging around for almost 6 years now. They re-surfaced as we were getting ready for the move. They were Cal J's and I just couldn't seem to let go of them. Shelb's has been wearing them, but I felt that I needed to "girlify" them, just a little...

So here's what I did.

I took some ribbon (from the by-the-yard-trim section in the fabric department), but you could use any kind of trim for this; lace, pom-pom, ric-rac, etc.

I cut it to fit around the front and back pockets. Pinned it in place, and then hand-sewed it in on the jeans.

And with the extra trim that I had, I slapped together some hair-flair. I just hand-stitched the ribbon into a flower shape. Then just glued it to an elastic headband.

Nice, and totally adorable!
Thanks for checking it out!
