According to the interwebs flares are back (again), hooray! I love me some bell bottomed denim action!
Of course, as with any returning trend, purchasing a mass produced pair of fab flares can leave you feeling as empty as your wallet so my darlings, don’t buy when you can easily DIY and create a pair that are truly unique, sustainable, ethical and best of all free!
Here’s how it’s done:
If you dig a bit of eye catching colour with your flares snag a funky vintage table cloth from the thrift shop, follow my quick and easy DIY bohemian bell bottoms tute and you’ll be rockin’ a pair of funky bells in a flash!
A pair of full denim flares are a cinch to make! Simply use the chopped legs from a pair of old jeans for your fabric inserts and follow that bell bottom tute!
A bit of single stitch embroidery added some funky detail to my flares and also made those bulky denim seams lay flat.
Unfortunately an over enthusiastic snip with the scissors led to a hole in my flares, fortunately a quick patch and simple embroidery fixed it all up and made my new jeans even more unique!
