My Daughter wanted a pair of jeans that I was in no way going to spend that kind of money on.  So instead we decided to make them and share our work!

Lets get started!

Step 1: Step 1 Gathering your supplies

What you will need is:

   * a pair of skinny jeans or tight jeans
   * tape measure
   * washable marker
   * scissors
   * pins
   * Leather grommet ribbon 3 Yards or more depending on how long you want the slit and how long your legs are
   *  1/4" elastic or ribbon approximately 6 yards  or more again depending on length of slit

Optional:  Fray stop

great job.
Awesome! Very unique and fun!
thanks so much!
Admittedly i just scrolled down, so forgive me if this was covered. (its morning here and i am just having a online quickie) <br /> <br />Perhaps my age is showing... (i will also venture a guess the these copies some &quot;I WANT&quot;-pants of the daughter, which of course will completely invalidate any (constructive) criticism i could possibly come up with) But isnt the &quot;nomal&quot; kind of these pants usually done on the side(s) of the leg, not the front, and also usually going all the way down? while i as a guy of course can not fault anything which shows more leg. Knees are often not the prettiest part of a body - esp. not after being held against a corner etc. <br /> <br />Well, just my observations. With that said, the result you got here is very nice and I do agree it is more punky than the side-cut type i mentioned above.
Yes the corset usually goes up the sides and I've seen them also on the bottom back, my daughter wanted to get a punk look and loved the pants the lead singer of her favorite band wears. Shown in this video Icon for Hire Make a move seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_S9VvJM1PI <br /> <br />I do agree about the knees, the photo with the corners pushing on her legs was taken to show that there has to be slack in the elastic so this doesn't happen. Which is also why we chose to use the elastic and not ribbon which would have no give at all. :) <br /> <br />Thanks so much for the comments! I always love to see them!! :)
