Step 1: What You Need
To make your ugly jeans into hot skinny jeans, You will need;
An old pair of jeans(or just a pair of flair or straight leg jeans)
Step 2: Getting Rid of the Top Stitching
If the jeans you are using have a noticeable seam or top stitching you will need to take that off.
turn your jeans inside-out and then sew them so that you cant see the seam.
Reinforce the crotch seam.
Step 3: How Skinny Do YOU Want Them?
First turn your jeans inside-out
Then measure how many inches you want to take off of each side and mark it with a sharpie or marking tool. Mark it again where you want it to start getting skinnier(somewhere around the knee)
Step 4: Finnish Marking
Connect the line you made at the bottom with the one you made by the knee.
Make sure you take off the same amount on both sides.
Step 5: The Fun Part
Sew along the lines you just made.
Don't cut off the extras unless your sure that's the way you want your skinny jeans.
Step 6: Finishing
You may want to tailor your super cute skinny jeans a bit more, slimming them down a bit in some places.
