I had an old pair of jeans left. So I thought, "Why do not sew a skirt from it?"



I love my new skirt!



First I cut the pants along the inseam.



Then I cut the pants to the appropriate length.
Thus the skirt later is not so tight, I decided to sew a front Godet (triangle).



I've sewn the godet and cut off the excess residue.



For the ruffle I cut a broad strip of colorful fabric.
Then I folded the strips lengthwise (wrong side of the inside) and sewn it together. This finished strip I evenly distributed in large ruffles on the hem, pinned and sewed.



What do you say?
CC welcome.

The ruffle is super cute! It really brightens it up. I might have to do that to one of my jean skirts! Smiley
