Summer Denim Refashion For Girls

Summer Denim Refashion For Girls

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.

With love til’ next time…

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    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!

    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!

    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!
