Adding ‘Flare’ to Narrow-Legged Jeans
I am a new sewer & have been asked to alter an old pair of narrow-legged jeans by adding a ‘flare’ to the sides. They don’t want bell-bottoms, just a boot-cut. They also need to add 1 1/2″ to the length. The length should be fairly easy, as I will be adding the length in the form of a ‘cuff’ in the same material as the flare, but I’m stumped on where to start with the flare. How far up the leg to I start, how do I tell how wide it should be? Does anyone know of any websites that could give me a ‘visual’?
