Hi everyone! I ve made this jeans skirt out of different old pairs of jeans, I really love it and wear these lovely autumn days, specially with white cotton shirt and boots.
 Now when I started to explore endless possibilities for recycling old jeans I regret throwing away any of them.  Grin Anyway, I have so many more new ideas, can t wait to start a new project.  Smiley

Hope to give idea to someone.

Greetings!

This is super cute!  Did you use the waist of one pair?  I love the trim at the bottom - such a cute touch!

emilyjp: thanks for the comment Smiley
I didn t use waist from the old pairs, not like that much the traditional way. I simply made paper patern of the whole skirt, cut it in pieces, so I made pattern pieces for different parts.
(sorry for my english, hope you got the idea)

I love to see recycled denim skirts that are different from the usual sort of jeans-to-skirt. Yours is really nice. It looks well-made as well as well-designed; the stripey trim at the hem is a great finishing touch.

Very nice!  I might try something similar myself.  I like the contrast between the blue and the black.
