Funky Denim Skirt
I decided to use one of C jeans which are getting too short for the waist. Then I did something I am surprised I've not seen others do. Rather than cutting it right above the crotch, I cut it below the crotch so this skirt has built in shorts (I am all about modesty for my two rather wild, rough and tumble girls).
While I was trying to decide where to find some finished fabric for the rest of the hem, I had a bright idea.
I had fun with this idea and love the surprise factor in it. I would like to experiment with it and make improvements on C's skirt next time. It was super quick, I bet it took less than half an hour to make.
I think that if you made a long skinny skirt it would be fun to add the zipper placket to the back for a kick pleat (for the record, I sewed the zipper closed).
