Revisited: Turn Baggy Jeans Into Skinny Jeans

Yesterday I started tailoring some cheap organic jeans I bought off Ebay to fit me - we all know that organic denim can be really pricey and jeans are not always easy to buy online cause the fit has to be just right (those thighs, that ass, the length)! In the pic above I am wearing some Aura Organic Jeans that had been baggy flare bottoms, a size too big for me --- but shoot, they were only $9$ so I bought them off Ebay without a regret. I turned those puppies inside out, put the pins in to mark the new seam lines, compared the lines to some jeans that fit me well, then got to sewing!

Here is a video I made about a year 1/2 ago on how to tailor your too big jeans to fit ya more stylishly (AKA baggy into skinny)... I am excited to look back on this video to find it is just about to hit the 130,000 views mark with over 240 comments of the youtube sort (debates on whether I am an ugly man or pretty woman and if only fags wear skinny jeans)...!

Pretty rockin' for an old school slide show!

What kind of sewing machine do you own?

Hey Lisa
It's about 4 years old and a Kenmore - my mom gave it to me as a gift so I am not sure how much it costs, but i can say it has never given me any problems at all! I love it.
It does stink really bad like plastic though when you first take it out the box.
