this was an ugly pair of jeans that I wore in grade 6. here's a before pic, when I started cutting them. they had slits at the bottom and 2 seams going accross each leg on both sides.. just look at the picture.

so I just cut below the first across-seam and above the second one on each leg. the first skirt is your typical jeans-to-mini, nothing special, except that I cheated and used the seam that was already there to make it look hemmed. I left it to fray a bit to make it look cooler. also pockets! the reason that I wanted to recon these jeans were the awesome zippered pockets.
(the pockets don't usually show from under the bottom, I was standing funny.)




insert your own bubba sparxx quote here. the back doesn't really go that wavy, I was just standing weird.. it's hard to take a good picture of your own behind.


on bed.




this is the second skirt, I love it a lot. it's made from the bottom of each pant leg. I based the style on those tripp skirts with the same zippered parts.
photo in the process of sewing them together.


on bed.




on moi.



my pride and joy, pink minisweater thing from hideous pink tshirt. it had 2 layers in the front that made the v neck thing, and I used hot pink leopard velvet for the bottom band and sleeve bands. I gave it puffed sleeves and a little button thing on each sleeve. and I safety pinned on a Virus patch that I stencilled a long time ago. it's hot.



yes, I forgot to pull down the inside layer of fabric, so it looks weird.




sleeve.


the buttons on the sleeves match the leopard spots perfectly, it's awesome.


oh yeah, did I mention that EVERYTHING here is sewn by hand? yup yup.

comments, criticisms, advice, please?

xoxo

the jeans that I used weren't that thick, thank god.
when I found that pink leopard velvet I nearly had a heart attack... and they only had like a meter and a half left so I got a discount on it! I bought it a long time ago, I've been too scared to cut it until now, so I've just been admiring it from afar.. lol.

I like it all - the single thing i would do is to put some of that hot pink leopart fabric underneath the zipped pleats in your second skirt - and tease people with a little glims of that hot fabric   Wink You really rock  Kiss

thanks everyone!  Kiss

pisicandru, I already considered doing that to make it even more like the tripp skirts that I based it on, but for now I'm gonna leave it the way it is, just because while it's warm outside I'm happy with the trashiness of it  Cheesy. I think I'll add in the leopard when it gets cooler so it would look cool with black leggings.

yay! Someone else who hand sews! I just finished a dress by hand, (except for the hemming on the skirt when I BEGGED mum to teach me to use a sewing machine cos I diidn't wanna sew 3 metres of skirt by hand)

They're very awesome, and I love the top! It turned out really well!

yeah, the wallace and gromit dress right? I was gonna compliment you on it butI have this thing about commenting on threads with a lot of pages just to repeat what everyone else has already said.
haha, that's why I haven't made any lovely twirly circle skirts yet even though I lust after them all the time. the hemming.. *shudders*.

I love that skirt idea! I have LOADS and LOADS of old worn-out jeans I could do that with. I'm in love with the last jean skirt with the zips, just kick ass.

I love the shirt, too, very cute.
