Back to School Skinny Jeans

See my full disclosure policy here.

Just about every year, I make some skinny jeans for back to school. See, for example, this post, this post, and this post. This year was no exception. I used some floral denim that I got at JoAnns for these.

I got the end of the bolt, so I had enough to make two pairs. My poor middle daughter felt a little left out. Until I let her come pick out some fabric for me to make something for her.

This denim was actually kind of a pain to work with. It was really stretchy-much stretchier than I expected. The waistbands on both pairs ended up kind of weird, even after I pressed them. But oh well. Kids this age don't usually keep their shirts tucked in anyway.

That printed denim is so fun--too bad it was a pain to work with, but you're right, nobody will ever see the waistband!

Love that print! They look adorable and yeah, no one will ever see the waistband! :D
