REDO #6 FIXING BELT LOOP ON JEANS
SUNDAY, JANUARY 2, 2011
HAPPY NEW YEARRRRRR!
Its the first weekend in 2011
and wanted to do something easy after all the late nights.
I pulled out some jeans a friend gave me over a year ago,
she couldn't use them and passed them on to me.
Since this was back when I wasn't being consistent with my alterations,
I tucked them away in my closet thinking I'd get to them. lol That never happened.
They're "jeweled" both on the front/back pockets, not my typical style,
but they're brand new and free!
She's also taller than I am,
I measured 3 in and used the end of the measuring tape as my guide.
With a regular pencil I made dashes along the way and then cut.
Instead of finishing the hem, I worked on closing up the hole & fixing the loop.
I used the seam section of the leftover jean because I wanted thick reinforced material to back up the hole.
Since the material had shredded too much I couldn't just sew the hole shut.
I folded the jean material in half and placed it on the inside. I sewed it by hand with a super thick/big needle and around the hole.
We were watching The Three Stooges, got distracted and sewed it a little crooked ;/
Outside view, before loop got fixed.
You can still see the shredded thread from the tear but there's no more hole.
Now just have to re-attach loop and hem length
I purposely cut just enough to wear with boots. Paired with my black thin/sheer sweater(camisole underneath), cropped striped jacket and muted silver jewelry
CLOSE UP: Fixed loop, no visible signs of a hole ever existing!
