So I wanted to make myself a jean skirt because I had just bought myself some amazingly cute red and black herringbone leggings.  So I threw this together in a few hours.  The longest bit was the pleating.

That's cute!  Did you use the legs of the jeans for the pleats, or other denim fabric?  I don't really do short skirts, but this is the first jeans -> skirt recon I've really liked (don't like the way the crotch seam is handled most of the time).

I dont do really short skirts, either! Its about 3/4 length thigh...
I used the legs.  If you wanted it longer, you could just cut it longer, but it leaves you less fabric to pleat with.  I cut off the crotch because the usual way to do skirt recons didn't look cute! I was gonna do it that way, but it didnt look right on me. I'm a pleated skirt junkie, so I thought Id give it a shot!

I mostly freehanded it.  I'm sorry, but I probably won't be doing a tutorial unless a ton of people want one.  I'm trying to keep a indie clothing company afloat, and I'm failing.  But I'll tell you this...it's really easy.  There's a similar-ish tute at whatthecraft.com

Thanks!  I didnt know how it would work with denim either, but I was gonna pitch the jeans anyway!  I actually made it to wear with the tights.  They are really slimming and they were only $3!!!!!

That's really adorable. I have a couple of jeans I'm getting rid of, now I might keep 'em. Thanks for the idea!

Very Cute!  I'm new to the site and am loving all the ideas I am seeing.  Makes me excited to pull out my box of old clothes to see what I can do. LOL!
