Jet Setter Jeans

I feel almost guilty about admitting this, but sometimes when I’m at Target getting toothpaste, shampoo, or whathaveyou, I wander into the clothing section.  While wandering the other day, I saw several pairs of flood-length jeans that I loved!  And I coveted them.  And I allllllmost bought a pair.  But then I remembered this pair of jeans that I’ve had for years, but never wear anymore:

Just a normal pair of jeans, y’all.  :)

There’s nothing wrong with these jeans, I just seem to prefer every other pair I own over them.  This means they’ll be perfect to transform into floods!

I used a safety pin to mark where I wanted my new floods to fall on my leg.

See it?

Then I made a couple of chops!

Chop!

I didn’t feel like trying to rock the frayed look, so I folded those raw edges under twice.

Pinned & Prepped!

Then, I ran each leg under the needle.

Whirrrrr!!!

After a quick press, I was all done!  :)

A most pressing issue!

And just like that, I now have a cute pair of trendy floods!  AND I saved myself about 30 bucks!  :)

Leaving on a Jet Plane…

But wait a tic…why am I at the airport?  And why is my sewing machine hanging out in the bottom corner of the above pic?

About to take another big CHOMP out of the Big Apple! :)

I have some exciting news, friends!  A couple of days ago, I was contacted by Good Afternoon America!!!!   I’ll be on Thursday’s show (August 2nd) doing a surprise refashion LIVE!!!!  Check your local listings, folks!

This suits me fine, as I’m not much of a “morning” person! ;)

A lucky audience member will get a personalized refash by moi!  I wonder who I’ll pick?!  :)

Wish me luck!!!!

Meet my companion (how very Doctor Who!), Larry! :)

Cheers!
