Last week Savers had a day where all jeans were 40% off. I went and got two pairs of kids' jeans, a pair of jeans myself, and a baby bee costume for $11. I looked at a lot of name brand jeans and tried on lots of them. This is the only one that was good enough to take home even though it still needed alterations. This is a pair of Gap jeans that I got for $3.60, and it was the only one good enough to take home even though it needed some alterations.
- Remove tab on the back waistband
- Remove the red stitching under one of the destroyed spots
- Remove the patch under the back pocket
- Taper the legs
Also, once I was this far, I realized that the waistband needed to be just a little bit tighter. Instead of doing a whole back seam alteration, I cheated. I did remove the waistband right above the back seam and took in the waistband. Then instead of redoing the welt seam I added a little dart that I hid underneath the welt seam.
You can also see how the back seam leans to one side because I added a dart and hid it under the seam. It's a cheater way, but nobody can see it underneath the belt loop.
