Two of my Christmas presents from my adorable husband were purple skinny jeans and black ankle boots. I love them both. In fact, the jeans were comfortable enough to try to replicate. I’ve had moderate success with rubbing off a pattern from RTW clothing so I gave it a shot. The pants needed some adjusting with the final fit, but over all, I’m pleased.
I bought the denim on sale plus end of bolt price for a total of $5 at JoAnn’s. That’s a price that’s hard to beat. After the last stitch was in, I decided to add a fanciful touch: a machine embroidered label on the back. Most of the time it will be covered by a shirt; I rarely tuck in my blouse and if I do I’ll have on a belt. The label is there to make me smile when I put on the jeans.
