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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
