Maternity Skinny Jeans Tutorial

I bought a pair of maternity jeans from Motherhood here in Orem but they were way to flare legged. I really wanted a pair of maternity skinny jeans and I haven't found the time to go get some at the Forever21 or H&M in Salt Lake so I just decided to DIY the jeans I never wear anyway. :)

So I found a pair of my favorite pre-pregnancy American Eagle skinnies ( They aren't like SUPER skinny so I know my future swollen legs will still fit into them) and laid them on top of the Motherhood jeans. I made sure the seems on the outside of the leg matched up all the way down. Then I straightened out the legs so they were all laying flat.

Once this was done I cut up the leg to about the middle-knee area ON THE INSIDE!!!!!
I turned them inside out 

and sewed with a straight stitch. (My machine already had black thread in it but I could have used blue. The jeans are dark enough that black doesn't show up.)

And here they are. :) They are looking great with boots and without.

Thanks for reading! Hope you had a great Christmas and have a Happy New Year!!!!

  1. I had no idea that you liked sewing! I have a whole room. Sewing machine, serger, and loads of fabric! We need to make some stuff.
    And here is an idea on some maternity pants, for cheap. Check KSL. Lots of people sell their clothes after one or two kids. You could get some jeans, and remake them for cheap. :)
