How Hard Can it Be?

I know this has been done before, but here's my take.  My 5 year old spilled chocolate ice cream on the leg of my favorite pants.   The stain wouldn't come out so I opted to recycle into a hip skirt.  They had already been reconstructed from regular jeans into cropped jeans.  So this was its third incarnation.  Not bad for a $5.00 pair of thrift store jeans!  I think I got my money's worth.
Before

Then the after, I used the trim from around the bottom of the legs to fill in the missing triangle.

Thanks for looking.  (I sound like ebay!! haha)
