l'enfant moderne :: wide-leg jeans



someone very nice left us a beautiful old pair of levi 501's this past year, & without a crumb trail for it's safe return.  i so covet that worn hem line.  i remember the day i first learned to order my clients hems, "with original finish;" it felt like i was let into some secret stylist's society.   what a treat those days were, one brilliant little trick after another, all to the the soundtrack of kruder dorfmeister, madonna's music, u2 & the beatles.  


i love the way these giant bells look around little fresh-bathed toes, making them all the more teeny-tiny.  we just took his everyday pants & placed their hems right over the 501 hems & traced, doubling the bottom width.  a 1/4" seam allowance was added, along with a little corduroy pocket for a few seeds or these wooden baby loons that live all over the house.  then we made a 3/4 " casing at the top with 3/4" elastic. 


now someone just needs to leave me a pair of x-large men's jeans so i can have a pair, too.
