You can call them flare jeans, wide-leg pants, or bell bottoms; either way, they are a style you can create yourself with a loved pair of jeans you already own. DIY flare jeans are pretty easy to make, and you won’t necessarily need a sewing machine.
If you want to add denim to an existing pair of jeans, you will need to look around to find something close to the same color. Going to resale stores is a great resource for finding the right fabric.
Remember, you can look in the kid’s and men’s sections; denim is denim. Also, look in the sections that have jackets, skirts, and dresses. You may find something great that inspires you.
You can find denim in many colors, with patterns printed and embroidered images, mostly of flowers.
Keep your options open. Many great fabrics will work.
