All About the Assets

It's all about the assets!!! And by that I mean, my um well you know bum! :) A few weeks ago I was invited to a boutique from my friend from church and I came across some jeans that I sore I would NEVER wear, and found love. There are decked in bling and I loved em! However, I am a little person, okay not really but close! I bet I am just over five feet tall, and I never find jeans or any pants for that matter that fit me. I am constantly walking on the bottoms and they rip and tear at the hem because of this. Then I cut off the remaining ends and have a sheered pant bottom. Really attractive! So these new pants I wanted to have altered, I mean I spent $50 (OUCH!) so I got a number of a gal who would do it for $12. Pretty reasonable I thought so I gave her a call and there was no answer, so I left a message. The lady never called me back, don't you HATE that!!! So while on pinterest I found a pin where you can hem your own pants and keep the original seam. I was all over that, and today I was FINALLY brave enough to try it out on my new pants. Why didn't I practice on another pair first? Because all the other thread was that famous denim orangy/yellowish (<--yes both words in the sewing world) color. My thread in my new pants was a blueish white and since I had white and the new stitch would not show I went for it on my new pair of pants. I am pretty pleased with the results.

Here are the before pictures, courteous of Teagan.

The bottom, LOT'S of extra fabric.
Front view of the pants, bet you couldn't tell huh?
After I hemmed the jeans. Still lots of fabric, but so much better!!!

Thanks Teagan for helping me with the photos. Glad I was able to hem these jeans up!
