Hi there!

I had a bunch of old jeans lying around and since my wardrobe is getting full, I needed to do something with them. I had seen a skirt made from the legs of old jeans some (really long) time ago and thought, it would be a great idea to try one myself.
So I took three jeans, cut off the legs, sew them together and voil: my brandnew striped jeans skirt!



(please ignore the smiley. I was making a silly face...)

I really, really love this skirt, I think I will wear it the whole spring and summer Cheesy

Thanks for looking, c&c welcome Smiley

i love this. i have tons of old jeans laying around because i'm a pack-rat that either don't fit anymore or can't be worn. maybe this will inspire me to do something with them. Smiley

That's a great idea! Silly, I didn't thought of that before. Now I have three legless jeans and no idea what to do with them Cheesy
