Summer Denim Refashion For Girls

Summer Denim Refashion | SewsNBows

Here’s a refashion I did with a great little pair of jeans that my kid loves.

They got a hole in the knee! Since summers here, I cut them to above the knee length.

I cut one side first…

Then folded them over & matched them up before cutting the other side.

Bella wanted them to have a distressed look, so I chopped into the denim in a few places, careful not to cut into the stitching. These will fray properly after washing.

Finally, I folded the leg cuff up and stitched, and added some colorful buttons. This was a quick project that got me lots of smiles and a big hug.

    Hey, I’m back (kind of)! I’ve been so busy, and it’s not going to stop all summer, I’ve been terrified to even look at my RSS Feeds because I had like a bajillion unread posts!

    Super cute! I especially love the buttons on the pocket. I think I’ll need to be doing this with Miss O’s cute colorful denim. She is such a skinny little slip of a thing that anything that fits around her waist is flood pants anyway, and now that she’s been in school a lot of them are in pretty rough condition. What a fun summer makeover!

    These are a blast from the past! I used to have jean shorts just like this when I was a kid, although they didn’t have the buttons on the pocket. You’re so stinking creative!

    Those are really super cute, Amy! I love the colorful buttons!

    You know, it reminds me of the little dots I have on my website. I think I love your buttons just as much as i love those dots. More even!

    You are so very clever!

    I would not have thought to turn up and hem, smart! Am I showing my lack of distressing knowledge? Love the color, glad she can wear them more!

  17. loving the distressed look of the jeans! I’m sure they will look better after a couple of washes! those buttons; super cute! when I was in high school, my mom used to cut off my old pair of jeans knee length and loved them, she did that for me for several years! I always liked them! glad you got many smiles too! :-) Hope you guys are doing well!
