I did some DIY crafts for my wedding (this was really pre-Pinterest, too, mind you) and always feel a small sense of accomplishment when I'm able to pull off a project that I would otherwise outsource.
When I found these jeans hidden in the depths of my closet, I honestly wondered 1.) how they survived several moves and 2.) if they were some sort of magical sisterhood pair of pants that I kept throwing out but it would magically reappear. Alas, they don't seem to possess superpowers (I haven't turned into Blake Lively or Rory Gilmore yet..) but I was able to give them a second life. I tested out the ol' step hem trend and a pair of pants that was one leg out the door (heh) was the perfect guinea pig. I actually think they turned out pretty well and I was able to test out a trend, to boot. So tell me, do you ever take matters into your own hands and DIY?
