Made out of old jogging pants, sweatshirt hoodie and jean pantleg.  Detail in back pocket is just sewn down with random straight stitch since I don't have anything to stick it down with, so that is what I came up with, I think it looks neat.  The waist I just stretched out and sewed down a strip on jean material.  The skirt is quite heavy, more of a spring type of skirt or winter with leggings I would say.  Not sure if I will ever wear it at all, not sure if I like it.  Plus I don't own a pair of leggings and don't have money to get any lol.





Comments and questions welcome.  I will try my best to answer any questions.  Thanks for looking.

I think that's so cute! I love the front & back pockets, and the different fabrics. Looks comfy!

I like it - it is funny and crazy. Not something to wear at a business meeting, LOL. But to a picnic or something like that.

I really like it! You should definately try and wear it ones you find some leggings. With sneakers it would look great! I also like the edgy look and how you used secondhand material.
Wait till you get compliments wearing it Smiley

Lol, I need to find me some leggings I guess hehe.  All I pretty much own are running shoes, although they aren't very fashionable.  I was even thinking maybe skinny skin tight jeans, I have one pair I may try and see what it looks like.  Thanks, I hope I get compliments when I wear it, rather than made fun of lol.

Thanks, Yes I do think a t-shirt would look good with it maybe, a fairly fitted one maybe, good idea.  I haven't got a pair of ballet flats that would suit it, I have one pair and they are too big and brown, you know that pair of shoes you buy when you try them on in the store they fit, but then when you get them home it is like, what was I thinking lol.  Combat boots, now that would be neat for sure!  Nice Idea.
