Before and After: Express Eva Jeans

These jeans have gone through many, many changes while I’ve had them.  Originally, they were Eva Fit and Flare Jeans from Express.  I had to dig way back in my archives to find a pic of them in their original state.

December 2008

Soon after buying these jeans, I began to realize that I really didn’t like the flared silhouette.  So in the summer of 2009, I altered them into skinny jeans and posted a tutorial.

June 2009

I kept them like this for awhile, frequently rolling up the cuffs.  Eventually, I decided that the length was not universally flattering on me – it worked with a few outfits, but generally wasn’t that great.  So I tried making them ankle length.

January 2010

This length was fun, but I often felt a bit odd.  I can’t really put my finger on it, but it just felt a bit in-between.  Not quite regular length jeans, not quite capris.  So, last week, I decided to make them capris.

April 2010

And I love them.  I’d really been wanting a pair of denim capris for the summer, and I wasn’t really wearing them a lot at the previous lengths.  I think I’ll be getting a lot more use out of them now, and I think the final result is pretty darn flattering.

    Wow! So many changes. I’m not sure my design skills up to par for that one. I’ll have to check out your tutorial. I think look great at all the lengths.
