 Smiley Hi Guys ,
    

       Have you ever been Hemming jeans and just felt wastefull throwing all those cool Hem scraps away ? Well I did ... I cant stand getting rid of anything that could later be usefull . So I decided to make an entire skirt out of the Hemmings ! yay! Ive been wanting to make this for quite sometime .. every since I made a purse using the same technique for a friend of mine ...


Well i finally got enough Hems saved up and whipped up this .. Please tell me whatcha think ??
I kept the bottom Hem line jagged because I wanted to show How the different width of leg  makes a longer or shorter strip.. plus I just think it looks a lil more fun and a lil less boring that A traditional mini .. I kinda look at the Hem line of this skirt as a Cross between Pencil / and mini  Wink. and it has a really cool swing to it when I walk . I also off set the zipper and left it exposed ..just for an added detail ...












Thanks for taking the time to look  Cheesy Please let me know what you think .. I love feed back

Have a great day/night
Jayne

Yes!  This is a great way to re-use them.  The skirt looks great.  I love the asymmetry and the exposed zip.
