In my child-bearing years I have worn a wide range of sizes. And I have learned not to get rid of certain clothes, especially jeans, because they will eventually fit again.
I really liked the way this particular pair of jeans fit me (especially the length), but the color was a bit dated/lacking/faded. So I bought some "denim blue" Rit dye and hoped I wouldn't regret the outcome.
And I'm happy to say the end result turned out great...perfect for spring!
These jeans now remind me of some of the bright spring/summer
