Find a nice pair of jeans that you would want to use for this project. My mom gave me a pair of these vintage Guess jeans that she didn't want anymore. These were "low waist" jeans, but they look high waisted to me.
Lay it down on a flat surface and see how short you will want to cut it.
Gather up all of your materials: scissors, chalk, and ruler.
Get ready to measure how much you want to cut, and be sure to mark it with a pen or piece of chalk so you don't mess up!
Depending on how strong your scissors are, you might not have to cut your jeans one layer at a time like I did, but if you do, make sure to mark it, so it will be even with the first layer.
Roll up the ends and see if it's the length that you want it to be. The best way to be sure of this is to try it on. After that, sew it so that the crease stays put and you're all set!
There you are, your very own DIY high waisted jeans! This is my first DIY tutorial, so I hope you guys enjoyed it and found some helpful tips along the way.
