Opinions on the fit of my Sardinia Skyline Pegs, please

Le sigh. These jeans are almost perfect - right length without hemming, combing hits my knees at the right place, the wash is lusciously soft and rich, but they bag out like nobody's business. I thought maybe I could pull them off as a boyfriend-ish style, but I'm not convinced. I've had them since January and every time I wear them I tell myself they're not working out, but I keep coming back to all the things I love about them. They'd be perfect in a 23 with a roomy waist (I am wearing a belt with these to keep them from sagging down even more). So please, help me decide - yay or nay?



And worn as rolled-up skinny boyfriend...



I dunno, maybe the fleecy ballet slippers make it work. Could just be me though. (kidding...)

By the way, I have thought about taking the thighs in, but I think the extra fabric might annoy me. And I've never done it before. Thoughts? Cat???

That is pretty much how my Jimmy Jimmy skinny fit me, only the rise on those is slightly higher.

Cuff and wear as BF.

yes, wear as cuffed boyfriend. i think they're cute either way though.

you could take in the thigh too. you have or had (don't know if you still have them) a pair of jeans that were taken in at the thighs by me. did the extra fabric bother you? i don't think it amounts to that much extra fabric. the way i take in thighs also lowers the rise a little though.

They look cute from the front but too baggy from the back. I agree with Dawn that they look cutest when cuffed.

I had to release the thigh alterations to even get those on! (they were the Tahiti Flynts btw, and I still have them ) So yeah, I dunno. I'll just live with the bagginess for now.

Beautiful jeans Roxy! Shame they are a size too big.. They do look better cuffed, and as others have commented if you could alter them a bit in the thighs - they'd be great!

turn jeans inside-out. figure out how much you need to take in, and then pinch half that amount.



i took this pair in one inch, so i pinched half an inch and tapered the amount as i sewed down the thigh. you sew over the crotch and along the inseam (this will lower the rise the amount you're taking in; i haven't figured out how to neatly take in thighs without sewing over the crotch).




this is what it looks like from the outside. i could have sewn closer to the seam, but it's really unnoticeable when the jeans are worn.

Cat, Thank you so much! I'd been trying to figure out how to take in the upper thigh without having to muck with the top stitching so that's perfect!
