I would love to make this. I have been staring at it over and over for months trying to figure out where to cut, what pieces go where, where to sew. I am so at my wits end that I thought I would ask. I have no clue how it even joins in the back and slits up the front. How to ruffle that one piece. UGH. This is a nightmare but such a dream of mine to make! I hope someone can guide me on this one. I am a very beginner sewer.

well, her drawing is cute and all, but you can't make this skirt out of one pair of jeans. there is not enough fabric to make the lower skirt bit.
i can draw you a diagram if you'd like, but it will take a bit. having issues with Illustrator at the moment.

ok, i've included the back view as i imagine it...

here's a diagram showing the whole lower skirt bit. dashed lines are flare added to front & side back pieces.

the back skirt pieces separated. you will need to add seam allowances. the arrows are approximate grain lines.

the front skirt pieces. the flounce can be spread as much or as little as you like. more spreading = drapier, flouncier. less spreading = straigher, flatter.

if this is still something you are interested in, i can walk you through more of the construction bits another time.

Noelle thank you so much! Yikes I looked at all your drawings and thought this is somthing to be done by an expert. I am such a basic sewer. The photo lead me to believe it was simple if you made the right cut into the jeans. I still do want to make it but am scared of my capability. Thank you again for taking the time to explain it to me!
