The following post is a repeat from my old (long dead) blog.
Here’s a really awesome denim skirt DIY. It looks kinda crazy, but it’s super simple to put together.
Take two pairs of jeans in coordinated colours. Cut one pair off just above the knees, and remove its inseam (just cut it) and the excess butt fabric.
Take the other pair of jeans, and chop off the legs at the crotch, as well as the outside seams.
Pin the smaller front piece to the front of the skirt’s body.
Alternately, you could pin the back piece to the front of the skirt. You know, if you’re feeling “zany” or perhaps “funky.”
Straight stitch around the perimeter of the smaller piece (like where you pinned it?).
And when you’re going over the thick parts (like the waistband), be careful; you don’t want the needle to break off and poke your eye. If I were you, I’d take my foot off the sewing pedal and manually feed it through with the machine’s hand dial thingy.
Also, if I were you, I’d double stitch along the side seams, just so the fraying doesn’t get out of control.
Repeat pinning and sewing with the back side.
Turn it inside out and trim off the excess fabric.
And there’s the skirt.
God, try taking a picture of your own legs.
Anyway, the skirt looks awesome. Believe.
