I saw these really cool little jeans on wardroberefashion, refashioned by Brisbane blogger Max California:
She refashioned her son's daggy jeans into skinny leg patched jeans, inspired by Gwen Stefani's son Kingston's trendy threads:
Her refashion has inspired mine. Not so much to refashion daggy jeans for my son, but to lengthen them. I bought these jeans from a childrens market for $2.
The little man has worn them a fair bit as they fit pretty well around the waist, however, as he has understandly grown taller since I bought them in June, they've been swinging around his ankles of late.
I followed Max California's tutorial, but also cut the jeans in half around the knee, so that I could add in an extra 10cm or so. I then patched up the gap with lots of cut up rectangles and squares from scrap material, jeans, and a pair of cords. Take a look at the inside of the jeans to see the gaps I've patched up:
I left the jeans fairly baggy as per their style, but I am pretty pleased with how they turned out
