“Plain” to “ombre-rainbow-happy” in a day. My main motivation was to make these cord-jeans a size bigger. I have so many jeans/pants in my stash because of impulse buying a “deal” that I didn’t bother trying on or that I saved from my pre-childbearing era. In this case, I was at the Gap Outlet and didn’t have time to try them on. (Always a mistake.)

But I love the colorful stripe trend. So… can I turn them into something even better? Let me know if you think the remake is better than the original in the comments below.


Jeans to remake
1/2 yard fabric (I got mine at Ikea some time ago and has been sitting in my stash.)
Sewing machine
Scissors and rotary cutter and mat
Walking foot for your machine
