There are so many ways to turn those worn or old pair of jeans into stylish new summer wear. Worn Jeans are common among kids, we don’t have to throw away them after wearing several months, remaining new except the big hole there, and we can repair the holes with cute ideas as we collected before. I love shopping, and jeans is a must see each time in the mall, but I seldom get jeans that perfectly fit me. The biggest problem is that they are usually too long, even some brand does carry Regular size. I thought I was tall enough among girls, but seems the jeans are for Models . There was a famous taylor near my university who did the same hem using the skills as the tutorial at do it yourself divas. But after moving to CA, I have to live with it. Finally I found it and tried doing the hem myself, it was simple and fast, though it’s not perfect enough as the taylor did, but I believe if I do it again, I can do it sooner and better.
