I found these skinnies a few years back, on sale at Express. I loved the fit so much that I bought two pairs, one size apart. Since I've gotten my cost-per-wear. . .plus, I was more than willing to spare them for this little DIY experiment. As it turns out, it was my boyfriend who was kind enough to destroy them at my request and I'm pretty pleased with the finished product.
