Recycled denim skirt...

  
I made a skirt!
I snatched a pair of Bee's jeans that had huge holes in the knees.
I chopped off the jeans just above the knees and
used the good part of the legs to made the insert
in the back and front.
Here's a good tutorial how to do that.
I really liked the simple A-line skirt that she made in the tutorial,
but I knew Bee would like ruffles more.
I found some cute ruffle skirts here and here!

 I ended up hemming this and putting two rows of ruffles
right over the top of it, overlapping one row over the other.
It worked like a dream.
I added a matching fabric belt.
This was so fun that I want to go on a holey jeans snatching mission!
I think all of my grandgirls would enjoy one!

Today I've been finishing up another project.
I'll show you soon!

  2. Very, very cute. Emilie used to make those when she was younger. I think they are the very cute and a great way to not throw out jeans. I love how cute yours turned out. Here is pin I saved on what I would like to make

  3. Aw! Very sweet! I remember I put inserts in my jeans when I was in high school. Sewing is fun! You are good with denim!

  4. I tried that, but made the skirt portion too long and too tight. Poor girls couldn't run. Yours is perfect.
