So I had these 2 pairs of pants that were to big, and really boring....so pencil skirt time!

this was boring old brown pants...

this is hard to see but its a black skirt with a top I made out of an old sweatshirt and some trim (ignore garish bra)

and this dress was once an old pair of jeans I hacked off and fitted as a top. Then I found some remnants of knit jersey (god bless that stuff) and made an asymmetrical skirt to attach. I love this one so much because I always get stopped and asked about it  Grin

So there ya go. Not everything is junk, and you can look fabulous on a dime and be green at the same time. Comments/ criticism appreciated!

Lets all go to Jack Taylor's to celebrate!
May the Ghost Squid be with you.

Those are awesome! Your pencil skirt looks amazing and I love the patter of that jersey fabric.  Using the jeans as the top of a dress is a great idea.  Cheesy

Other than making jeans into a jean skirt, that is the best use of old jeans I've seen in a while.

Too awesome.  I admire them all.  You are rocking those outfits and you look like a diva!  I like the asymetical skirt best.  That shape is very flattering for those that curve.  Great job.
