But, it's not just the grey and gloomy weather that has got me fed up, it's the fact that I cannot find a properly fitting pair of jeans to slip into on these wintry days when I want to be casual, comfy and still somewhat stylish. Many women struggle with this issue, I know I'm not alone, but it is completely frustrating. Now, I know all too well how hard it is to make a decent fitting pair of pants and I'm sure my comrade in construction, K-Line will concur. But, why is every pair of jeans too big on my waist, yet too tight on my legs? Okay, I am a bit athletic and that causes problems, but still I shouldn't have this much trouble.
"Denim Dont's" NEVER do this!!
(I don't know why stupid Blogger will not let me import this image vertically -- the way it is actually saved!)Wouldn't it be great if we could all just customize our jeans? There have been (and still are) other places who custom make denim trousers, but they come with a hefty price tag. Well, I recently came across a site called "Make Your Own Jeans." Um... that pretty much says it all! Make Your Own Jeans claims to tailor a pair perfect for your shape starting as low as $49. Pretty great, wouldn't you say? Levi's offers a similar deal with their Curve ID. So, I'm giving up on overpriced, ill-fitting brands and giving this a shot. Well, in all honestly, I will probably just suffer with what I've got already for the rest of the season because I'm being extra frugal these days, but when I'm ready for new jeans I will most definitely go about it a new way.
