Today I was bored again and found this old pair of jeans that don't fit anymore. I used to love these jeans; they were the jeans I wore on my first date with Peter...but it's funny how styles can change after only 6 years. Nowadays these would be considered frumpy-bottom jeans. So they went in the pile.
I decided that Eden needed some cute jean skirts for Fall, so here we are. This is pretty basic sewing, which (let's face it) is all I can do so far. But I am pretty proud of myself anyway.
I measured and cut the jeans like so:
Then I sewed up the sides and did an elastic waistband. With the A-line skirt, I sewed a scrap of fabric to fold over for the waistband so I didn't have to sew over that big huge seam folded over.
I made one A-line skirt, using the "bells" of the pants, and a straight-legged skirt using the thighs.
All that's left of the pants are these Daisy Dukes!
I just need to wash the straight-legged one so it will fray up. I tried to get some pictures, but the model was a little reluctant! The top two are the straight one, and the bottom two are the A-line.
Now I need to go buy her some boots to wear with these!
