Bell Bottoms

March 18th, 2010 5 Comments

Guess what I made? Bell Bottoms! What? You couldn’t guess that given the title of this post?

Please ignore my shoddy photography skills. My camera batteries died so I had to take these with my phone … in the bathroom mirror.

I started out with a regular pair of jeans.

I opened the seams up to the knee. Then I took my son’s outgrown jeans, cut them up, sewed them back together and inserted them into the sides of my jeans!

And some more views … because I am smitten with these bells!

And my favorite pic …

Hubby kept telling me how much he hated* them while i was sewing them up, but when they were all done he said he like them and they “are kinda cool.” What do you think?

*He likes to say he “hates” a lot of things I make because they are retro/hippie and girly. He’s mostly joking 😉
