Today I am showing of the results of a tutorial I beta tested (if nagging your friend until she lets you have a sneak peak because you lack patience counts as beta testing anyway...).
This is an excellent way to turn a ripped pair of jeans into a really cute skirt! You can find the tutorial here
I love this skirt! Because the waistband is my old jeans I didn't need to worry about the fit and the rest was easy!
I did modify the pattern slightly in that I reapplied my back pockets. I adore these pockets in my jeans so I wanted to keep them!
I also made my middle ruffle quite long (I'm pretty tall so there's a lot of me to cover! Next time I think I might make it a bit shorter) and I added trim.
It was worth it though. Love this skirt!
