SRSLY, what's a girl to do, right? You've got this favorite pair of jeans and they've been worn to DEATH but you just can't let them go...
In my case, it's a pair of Converse One Star from Target that set me back ~$30 2 or 3 years ago. I know, right? But the fabric was just sooooooo sooooooft. So today, I gathered all the get up and go I could muster and headed to the Local Mega Fabric Mart for some microsuede and some pleather. I know, I know PLEATHER. But really, when used tastefully and in small amounts, it's really not all that heinous. I promise. See?
What I did:
- Cut the legs open on the inseams
- Cut off the belt loops
- Cut microsuede on the bias in two long triangles and sew in the space between the legs to fill in
- Cut pleather on bias for hem binding and new waistband
- Sew using a zigzag stitch and a denim needle
