^ I think you could still work with them Kimkhuu. If they remind you of leggings, couldn't you could wear them like leggings?

It's up to you to decide! =)

Personally, I think it's better if it's at least slighly wider than tights so it can move a bit. ;-)

Well of course it will move, but I am just scared they are really ugly (because they are, but I really don't want to throw them away, at the price I paid for them)....?!

Kim, if you think it looks good: flaunt it!

If not: don't.

kim, if you find them really, really hideous as jeans (and i couldn't tell you until i saw a pic...want to post one? don't if you are really scared!) you could always customise them into a jean skirt. you probably have enough material for that. i totally understand not wanting to part with them, especially if they cost $$$.

^ Great advice.... But I am still hopelessly looking for a way to be able to wear them..... Are skinny jeans that are normal fit from the waist to the knees but leggings' fit from the knee to the feet wearable..? Or is it too ugly?!

^ That shape does sound a little strange...

Can you let out the lower leg? Or maybe take in the thigh? If not, I think .francesca's suggestion if probably your best option...

Or maybe long cut-offs if they have some bag in the thigh. I've seen those worn well recently, although it seems a bit tricky...

I think those are cute if the thigh of your jeans resembles those in the pic. I'd rock em

Ok, but those jeans I made were meant to be for everyday casual wear. Could I wear them with my hi top Converse all stars in black?

If your jeans are like the pics, they look great
And I'm sure they will look great with your converse. Where I live I have seen quite a few wearing that.

It's hard to tell, when we haven't seen your jeans. But I have seen tighter jeans than the ones at the pic, and they looked all right :p

I'm not married yet but the best customization is to dye your wedding shoes to the color of your dress...and all your bridesmaids' too!

great job btw...
well i was wearing some shorts at the time and i hate taking clothes on and off to alter them! so i pulled the bottom half of the jeans on from the knee down with the crotch area around my knees then pinned them ta da the jeans dont move because you only have them on half way! and i generally pin my clothes on inside out anyway!

and i did kind of wing it but hey it worked!
