I'm with wierdbutter, I want to be your broke hippy friend too!

I love the tie back - it makes the top i think.

IMHO - a covered button - in the same blue as on the pocket. Or maybe a little flower on a pin... any way you finish it, it looks great!

I love the stencil - what did you use? fabric paint? It looks great!

It looks great on you! (whatever you choose to call it!)

I'd love a tute!

375  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / jeans-to-flared skirt, my first (edit: and my second too! pg 3) on: May 29, 2006 07:56:16 AM
I'm very excited about how this turned out, and I really wanted to share... just discovered craftster a few days ago, and I'm addicted.

I had an ugly tapered pair of jeans that spent more time at the bottom of my drawer than on my legs, so i cut 'em up. Nothing more satisfying. I didn't have enough material left from the legs, so i added some scraps from 2 other pairs of jeans-turned-shorts to make up the difference.

Here's me and my new skirt:

This is it flat on my desk:

And this is the inside:

I really like the inside, and am going to make another skirt for my sister, but this time leave the seams exposed on the outside, and NOT overlock the edges so they fray. I think it'll be cool... That will also solve my hem problem.

I'm hoping one of you super-creative people out there will have an idea for me. Apparently I didn't think this through all the way before I started. Because of the flare, i can't just turn the hem up, and I don't think it looks quite right the way it is. Any ideas for how to finish the hem without turning it? I considered bias tape or ribbon or something, but it doesn't seem right. I have a piece of tulle that I've been dying to use, but denim and tulle is a bit of a wacky combination... I just don't know. Help? Undecided

ps. I'd love to see someone else's take on this, so if anyone is interested, I could post the pattern.

Edit: Here's the pattern. I had to shrink it, so blow it up to the appropriate size (the top (minus seam allowance) should equal the measurement of your cutoffs /12) cut 12 pieces, and go! If you want to lengthen or shorten, do it above the dotted line to preserve the flare.

Is there a thread with swap rules/guidelines somewhere?
