I started on a hunt for a more vintage pair but I gave up and wondered into the market to see if I could grab anything nice and niche.
I spotted a pair of straight leg, light wash jeans and I got a vision. I could turn these bad boys into mama jeans!! And so it came to being. I instantly bought a pair, at £3 I didn't really have to think about the implications on my purse.
They were a pair of light wash, slightly distressed, straight leg men's jeans, which didn't look very attractive at first.
|The before shot ( I purchased a new pair to jazz up again!)|
Steps I took:
I measured from my knee to my ankles and the same for the jeans, from the ankle to the bottom hem.
I sewed on an inward slant from the knee to the end,on the outward leg seam, so it made a large triangle. I cut of the excess denim and repeated this for the other leg.
It took about 2 tries on both legs to get them equal. Small tip measure your calf width first and measure this up with the bottom of of the jeans.

|It took some balance to stay on that ledge.|
