Is a makeover or a recycle?
For over 6 years I have had a pair of denim jeans promising myself I would loose the weight and wear them. Having got down to a size 16 I was disappointed that they still did not fit round the waist. The legs parts were just right in length and width. I was left with two options - take them to a charity shop and pay for another pair or alter these somehow. I research on U tube altering jeans and it seemed others had inserted a triangle into jeans to solve this problem. So I tried it.
Talking of keeping things for years before wearing. I finished the dress this week and realized the buttons were those I had on a red corduroy dress I made in 1975 and wore when pregnant with my first child, who will be 40 next year!
