Woah. THat is one cool skirt. I've been meaning to make something similar for AGES...(Never got round to it.)

Did you tie-dye the denim? And did it turnout OK? Because I read somewhere that tie-dying denim doesn't turn out that well.

Why yes- indeed! That is Meg and Jack White hanging out on my skirt!  As for the denim, I origionally bleached these jeans, didnt like the way it looked and then, not wanting to spend eight dollars on RIT dye, I just watered down some acryllic paint (cheap Liquitex Basics) and did washes of red and blue- took forever to dry, but it was worth while! Thanks for the complements! Cheesy Kiss Ryn

Hey guys! Thanks for the complements!  Grin
To answer some of your questions, Yes that is the white stripes on my skirt.  I did not use dye, I basicallly poured bleach on my jeans, washed them, and then brushed on watered down red acryllic paint (liquitex Basics).  After they dried, I drew on them with colored sharpie markers, and stenciled on them.  After that, I made them into the skirt you see now by cutting open the inseams, sewing them together, and putting fabric inserts in.  The rest of the decoration is reverse applique, embroidery and buttons.  To do the reverse applique as seen on my skirt,  I simply cut windows in the denim and found scraps to sew behind them.  I am sure there are some embroidery how- tos on this site somewhere, good luck- I look foreward to seeing some of your designs!
Again thanks for the kind words!  Kiss Ryn P.S.- here is the skully close up- its from M.C. Escher

wow!! that is definitely eclectic!! it's awesome!! I have a pair of jeans that are getting a little tight and i wanted to make a skirt, but i wasn't sure what to do, because who wants a boring jean skirt (not me anyway), so this gave me some ideas... awesome job, and very original! Smiley
