Repurpose Your Jeans into a Skirt

I had a couple of pairs of jeans that I purchased on-line a few years ago. They didn’t really fit and I have been wanting some skirts so I decided to make them over. 

The first thing I did was cut off the legs. 

I then found my  handy-dandy seam ripper.  I took the inside leg seam out and then the front seam almost to the zipper.  Next I took the back seam out about 5 1/2″. 

       

 

     

Then I lapped the curved seam over so the seam is now flat on the front and back and pin.   

                                        

I sewed the seams down with the closest thread I had to the jean thread. 

Next I cut the bottom so that it was straight.  I zigzaged the unfinished edge, you can serge if you want.  I didn’t feel like dragging out my serger and changing the thread.

I completed the fabric part of the skirt and attached it to the skirt.  You can see how to do this on my repurposed skirt  page.
