Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Massive jeans, #58, vogue 8993

Well I had the epic polo now I have a massive jeans refashion. Check out these jeans!


Now I am actually in these jeans you just can't tell. It almost looks like I am putting them in front of me. As I stared down at the jeans I thought.... Hmm I think I can get my body in one leg. So I tried it out!
OMG I could! I could not stop laughing!! Holy Cow!

I decided to use a pattern. Use the top half of pants for a skirt and then use the bottom half for the bodice. First cut in half. Sew out that J front and back of the legs/bum area.

Bodice in the works... I screwed up on one part but you can't tell unless you look really closely at the finished garment. Half of the time I can't find it.

I used Vogue 8993, pretty easy pattern.

The skirt took a bit more handling, go figure. then I connected and added a zipper
Now before I finished the dress, I had other things going on (story of my life) and I let it hang b/c something was off.

I had left the waistband on the bottom of the skirt. But I realized I hated it. So off it went...


As you can see, the skirt sort of has a point to it but I kept it as is. I sort of liked the different feeling I got with the dress. 



My only beef with this pattern is I felt as if the arm holes were a bit low.

So in case you don't realize that these are jeans, the zipper is the slit and you can see the small pockets.

Here is the recap.... big jeans to a dress. Yes... only a little bit of time left before the cold comes.

Cheers,
Lauren

Heeyy, I like this pattern, Lauren. I really like the length of it very versatile.

I'll bet you get much use out of your denim version too.

Good job!

Cheers,

Lyric
