Make Do And Mend

Summer Jeans

Found these nice light striped jeans in the clearence section for only a £10 ,bargain, loved the colour and pattern but not the wide leg cut or the un-hemmed framed bottom.

So i first edited the shaping of the trouser legs for my preferred bootleg cut. after a few trials i achived the wright look not to tight but not to baggy and sewed both legs up, trimmed of the excess and edged. then i hemmed the bottom of the trousers to give them a more finished look.

Now i have a lovely summery pair of jeans 🙂

Make Do And Mend

Stripes

This stripey top i got for £5 as one of the buttons was missing and it became my first ‘Make Do and Mend’ project.

I didn’t like the mishmash-ed button selection anyway so i removed them all and added my own white mother of pear ones for a classier feel.

Then i hacked of the bottom of the sleeves to get rid of the ‘detailing’ and made it into a 3/4 length with a loop and button detailing to hold up the rolled edge using the cut off’s.
