I had this awesome pair of black jeans, but like everything awesome and much worn (and made in China), one day they ripped, right across the back. So they, and some random scraps, got turned into this skirt.


Sorry I don't have any before pictures (hey, I didn't plan on ripping my jeans half-way through an AcDec team qualifier meet), but this was a pair of black flare jeans until they ripped and then they got turned into this skirt. The center-right, lower-left, and lower-right pictures are all "in process" pictures. The burgundy stuff on the bottom is probably satin; it frays like there's no tomorrow so I cheated and rubber-cemented the loose threads together (irony: on the bottle it said "thread-locker"; it's for gluing screws in place). That's the lower-left picture. The red line in the middle is basic cotton jersey.

I didn't take many during pictures, and I just kind of winged it, without tutorial or pattern.

I love it.
I'd almost do the same with my black jeans that I wore too much, but I'll use them for drafting a pattern for new black jeans.

I love the trim you added to it it makes it so cute! I've had unfortunate things happen to my favorite pants also and i think it's great that you turned them into something new instead of throwing them away! Woo!

Boldly going where others have probably been.
