Skinny Jeans {for BOYS} Tutorial

Okay, so before we get to the {super easy} Skinny Jeans Tutorial I have to give you a little back story.  Unless you’ve watched my vlogs you might not know that I work part-time… at a children’s clothing store!  
When the boys were born I decided that I really needed to get out of the house and have some ‘mommy time’.  Enter the Children’s Place, a children’s clothing store with great quality clothing and good prices.  I mean really, have you looked at photos of the boys?  I think that 95% of their wardrobe is from TCP.
Anyway, one of the things that customers can never find are Skinny Jeans… for BOYS!  Truly the cutest thing on little boys ever, are Skinny Jeans.  After creating these jeans using a $5.99 pair of TCP straight leg jeans, there’s no going back.  I love them!   So stop searching ladies and pull out your sewing machine…

Cute right?!?
Start by deciding how small you want to make the legs.  I had Isaiah try on this size 4T and determined that I could take about an inch off of each seam.  Invert the jeans so the right sides of the material are together.
Start with the inseam of the jeans and sew a new seam that tapers at the top to join the old seam. 
Repeat for the outer seam.
Cut and trim off excess material.  At this point you can top stitch the seams flat if you want.  And use a product like Fray Stop to help prevent the new seams from fraying.
All done.
And rocker boy loves them.  Which is all that matters really.  He didn’t want to take them off and said

“Oh thank you Mommy!  You made pants special for me?!”
One of the best feelings in the world ~ making my children happy, simply.
