Recently, I’ve been needing a pair of jeans to tuck into boots. I don’t like “skinny jeans,” but that’s what these are. I just took a pair of $1 jeans from garage sale and tried them on inside out. I pinned them down the leg,making sure they were tight enough to stuff into boots but loose enough to take off. Then I zipped along this line with my machine (not without trouble: my needle kept hitting the metal part over and over). These jeans weren’t even the slightly stretchy kind.  Now, I have basically a brand new pair of jeans that took only an hour!
