Jean Tapering Measuring Guide

Transform your favourite baggy jeans into fitted, slim or skinny leg jeans!

  1. If you have a pair of trousers or jeans to model these alterations on, measure their width just above the hem. All measurements should be made in inches. This is the width your baggy jeans will be turned into.

Step 1

2. If you don't have a model pair of trousers or jeans, use our guide lines below:

Width Guide to Jean Tapers

  • Width of “10” Inches & a circumference of “20” Inches= Wide Leg
  • Width of “9” Inches & a circumference of “18” = Standard Leg
  • Width of “8” Inches & a circumference of “16” Inches= Slim Leg
  • Width of “7” Inches & a circumference of “14” Inches= Skinny Leg
  • Width of “6” Inches & a circumference of “12” Inches = Super Skinny Leg

Tip: We recommend no narrower than a “6” Inch width (A circumference of “12” inches in the leg.) If you have a pair of jeans that the leg width is perfect, then use those as the template.

That’s all there is to it!
