Sitting through an in-service a couple of weeks ago, day dreaming. I noticed a team mate's cute capris. Loved the rivet on the cuff. Of course, I thought "I can do that".
History of the jeans: I love picking up jeans at the local thrift store. I picked these up a couple years ago. They are a size to big and I put a couple of darts in them, similar to my ombre jeans. Then I cut the length to make them capris, with a small cut at the seam (they were not long enough for me to start with)
I wore them like this for a year or so, sometimes rolling up a cuff. The cuff never stayed. So when I saw my team mate's with a rivet, I knew these would be the perfect jeans for the transformation.
Stitched the cuff up, then folded one corner down. Used a punch to make a hole, and then used some great rhinestones I had picked up from Michaels (sorry no pics for this-forgot) :(.
Love how they turned out.
Also, had to add a patch as I had a hole through.
Post about patch coming soon.
