Disney from Ruffles and Stuff shows how she turned a pair of her daughter’s too-short jeans into trendy skinny jeans. But don’t limit this technique to just your child’s jeans. This same technique works on adult-sized jeans as well. (I know, because my mother used to do this for my sister and I during the 80s when it was SO uncool to have the ankles of your jeans stick out even an inch.) The bootcut to skinny jean transformation is so simple that it can be done in 30 minutes or less. Go to her tutorial.
