ok so this is my first post so bare w/ me...

JEAN SKIRT TUTORIAL

1) jet any pair of old jeans... (please excuse the hideous carpet color...

2) before your cut ANYTHING measure how long u want the skirt


3) when cutting the skirt in half (i guess you would call it) make sure u have the inner seam attatched on both front and back


4) now that ur all ready to go- pin your skirt and do a test fitting before sewing to fix any problems


5) now u can sew it... i prefer hand sewing so that you can get really close to the edge if u need to

6) now u can cut your legs to get the excess fabric off... leaving space so you can perfect the line


7) perfect the hemline and use a fray blocker (like i did)

or make your own hem

Cool wear it  Grin

Cool, it's perfect! Now I want one...

But I was wondering about this fray blocker. Is it very effective? Does it last long?

Great tute and an even better skirt!
Personally I love fraying denim but that's a great idea to stop fraying.
I don't think fray blocker is available in Australia though.
