DIY Skinny Jeans

About a month ago, I bought a pair of white skinny jeans at Loft. I have to say though, finding white skinny jeans is almost an impossible task. They either don't fit or they are very see-through. After a whole day searching every store for these perfect white jeans, we decide to go into Loft for the first time. I find a couple of pairs to try on and am not totally sold. But by now, I'm tired, hungry, and wondering if this mad hunt was really worth it to begin with. A few of the lights in the store start turning off which means one thing. They are closing. If you know me, I don't do well with quick decisions. I decided to buy a pair hoping that washing and drying would shrink them a little. And sadly enough, they didn't shrink at all. And after I tried them on again, they did not seem like skinny jeans, but more like straight leg. After that they hung in my closet until last weekend when I decided to give this amazing tutorial a shot. And I'm so glad I did. This tutorial shows step by step photos to turn boot cut jeans into skinny jeans. 

I was a bit hesitant at first so I used an old pair of boot cut jeans I never wore as my guinea pig. It worked exactly how I wanted so I did the same thing to my unloved white jeans. Now they are exactly what I was looking for originally! 

Don't mind baby Alice chowing down on her 4th meal in the background. ;)

Hope this inspires you to turn your unloved jeans into a new creation!
