This tute will change your life.

It's not my tute. I wish it were though. It's Susan's over at Freshly Picked, but it really will change your life.

It made my jeans stop looking like this....

...and start looking like this!

They are my favourite jeans ever, but the waist was just way too big. The pictures aren't great (have you ever tried taking pictures of your own backside? No? Give it a go some time - hours of fun) but you get the idea. And now... no more hoiking them up all day, and, even better, no more builders bum! See how the two little brass studs are closer together in the second picture? That's what we're doing here.

So, I urge you to go forth and alter. Everyone has at least one pair of almost perfect jeans somewhere. See, I told you it would change your life.

In other news, would you check out this booty (as opposed to the booty above, haha... oh, I amuse myself). My dad cleared out his wardrobe and I got these shirts. I already have plans for at least some of these, such as this and this. Now, go on, say Oooooooh...

I am, not for the first time, exceedingly grateful to have a father who never, ever, wears a boring shirt.


  1. Your Dad must be real cool!

  2. oh, i would probably run over a small bunny for that waist + backside, you are too cute.

    thanks for the link.

  3. Thanks! You just made my day :)

    Love your blog xx

    Do you do commissions for this?? Aside from not knowing where to start with my sewing machine I just can't find the time and energy in the evening to do much more than read stuff on the internet!! I'm pretty sure there will be a welcome relief from the sight of my pants!!
