Earlier this summer my husband went through his jeans and he handed me two pair. I stored one in my scrap tub to be used for patches, or possible crafts I have found on pinterest. With the other I was convinced I could make a cute jean skirt out of it. It is my new favorite thing--I wear it all the time.
I ripped out the inside seam, the one that goes from the crotch down the legs. Then I ripped out the seam in front all the way to the zipper, and in the back all the way up to the waist band. Then I just overlapped them, pinned them, topstitched them, and trimmed them. I was trying to avoid this weird look.
The jeans were pretty rough when my husband passed them down to me. I made some heart patches out of the bottom of the legs. Then decided to do everything in a navy stitch (too lazy to change my bobbin, hmmmm). I also did some random top stitching hoping to ward off a few other possible holes.
I love the boho look of all the rough frayed edges. I did have to go back and zigzag down the front and back next to my top stitch. They started fraying past the topstitch. I also top stitched the hem to keep it from continuing to get short.
I think it turned out great. Again, cheap, fast and easy!
Thanks for stopping by.
