So my grandma gave me sheets for the challenge. I ran home excited and I took them out of the bag to find they were plain white sheets. I was going on a tie-dye craze so I took them and did so with the sheets.
I've only got after pictures (I was too excited to think about taking pictures while I was making it)
And now you've waited long enough time to see the skirt!







Oh and the waist was saved off a pair of jeans that were ruined. Stained beyond saving.

Great tie-dyeing!  I love the colors and awesome use of jean waistband.  Very nice!

My thoughts exactly Smiley. The tie-dye colors are really fun and the jeans recon is awesome! Very clever idea.

Love this. I need to get to dyeing all the things I've been putting off.

I used a jean waist on a skirt in the gibbous swap and now I save them all. I want to make a skirt for me.

That sounds really neat! If you mean a skirt that looks like this one the hardest part was sewing the skirt to the jean waist. I did that part by hand.
