Anyone alter a pair of jeans?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had a pair of Monacos listed in the HM, because I have 2 pairs of them (different sizes). So I decided to make one of them capris. Well I was debating over capris & the pants that come above your knees (don't know what they're called), and I decided capri length (I took off about 6 inches). I want to do it again, but I don't because it wasn't exactly fun/easy. Plus I don't really wear capris. I kept the original hem, but I had to cut it to make it smaller, because the jeans are rigid and wouldn't stretch out an additional 2 inches to accomodate (sp?) the flare. Anyway they lok nice, and you can't see the place where I cut the hems.
Has anyone else made their jeans into capris and left the original hem? If so have you done it yourself?
Someone stop me!!! I want to do it to another pair. (insert smiley face here)

Yes, I've cropped jeans into capris before, but I had the tailor do it. My inseam is incredibly short and she was unable to keep the original hem, but she did a fantastic job re-creating it herself with distressing and all. I didn't notice the difference, until she pulled out the scraps and showed me the originals. Turning jeans into capris is as addicting as getting tattoos; I've had my tailor chop of four pairs so far, and now I'm having her put tummy panels in some of my older ones too.

If you don't mind me asking, what is your inseam? Mine's 28, crops are now 20

Mine's 28.5" and crops are usually 19.5" sometimes 20". If they're slimmer fitting, then I usually go just a tad shorter, so they don't hug the biggest part of my calves.
