So I had these "strech" jeans, and my rear being the way that it is, they became worn and started to tear holes right in the seat (below the pockets) So I wanted to be as frugal as possible and get as much out of them as I could.
My inspiration for the first skirt was a skirt I saw on gojane.com that looked like the top of a pair of jeans with a ruffly skirt attached. I cut the jeans above the crotch seam, and jsut 1" below the back pockets(for seam allowance) and added a large circle skirt, just a large circle cut out of some jersey I got for $1.50 for one yard. It looked kind of plain, so then I added some sparkly blue trim to the seam line.
here's my version, again with no pattern on either:http://ifs1.imagefly.info/ifs1/74/Denimcircleskirt.jpg
and here's a view of my hiney:http://ifs1.imagefly.info/ifs1/b8/Denimcircleskirtback.jpg
The butterfly rhinestone thingy is just a pin, it comes off so I can accessorize in other ways.
Then I had the entire bottom of the jeans, still attached by the inseam, so I cut the legs open, and added more jersey material for the side panels and waistband ( with flower print this time) so it would fit properly, and now I had 2 skirts from one pair of jeans!
