What are Tapered Jeans?

I realized after yesterdays blog post that I needed to explain tapered jeans for some that may not know.

"Taking In" your jeans is another word for tapering jeans. Why would someone need to taper jeans?  You may have a pair of boot cut or wide leg jeans that you loved at one time still in great condition. You may want to taper these so that you can still get good use out of them as a straight leg jean.  Also, you may want to take those straight leg jeans and make them into skinny jeans. 

To taper a jean is different then to hem a jean.  When you hem a jean you are taking up the length of the leg of the jean or pant. 

The process can differ when tapering a pair of jeans.  You can taper the whole leg or the bottom of the leg under your knee.  You would need to choose which is best for you.
