I have a stack of jeans in my closet that are a couple of sizes too big but they are basically new. I didn't know what to do with them and I didn't want to get rid of them. I just got some winter boots and needed jeans that would fit tucked into them so I decided to try to modify the legs. Incidently, right as I decided to try this I ran into this awesome tutorial about changing regular pants into skinnies (the easy way). I never intended to wear them alone but I liked how they turned out so much that I've actually worn them several times already! I'll be doing this to at least one more pair so next time I'll post a before and after.
