Hokay, so. I love making skirts, but HATE doing waistbands (blergh blergh waistbands), so when I saw this idea in a book I was pretty thrilled. Especially considering I tend to keep jeans LONG after the knees wear out (and sometimes the butt).
So, skirt 1 is a jeans waistband with panels of corduroy from a bunch of pairs of cords I found in the "Final Clearance!" box at the thrift store. Too too small for me, but I love cord...


This second skirt is made in exactly the same way, apart from a narrower jeans section on account of that worn out butt problem I mentioned earlier. The skirty part is a bed spread from the 70s I think, which gave me a pretty hemline Cheesy

(You can click these to embiggen)
I also don't usually stand like that, I was just trying to show the jeans bit. Added bonus of jean waistband: Excellent pockets. Oh yeah.

These look great!! It's too funny though, I just bought an absurdly short jean skirt at the thrift store for this very purpose! Haven't made it yet though.
The one skirt I made completely, the worst part was indeed the waistband and zipper, so I decided to cheat this time around Wink

I really like this idea. I'm a zipper-dummy; I've read and read how to do it, but I'm still confused!
