Old Jeans to Denim Skirt

Take one pair of old holey denim jeans, a couple of hours, a youtube video and you end up with a comfy denim skirt.

I had a pair of denim jeans that were really comfy, but had started to develop holes between the legs, so I thought I would try making a denim skirt out of them.

I started unpicking the inner legs, then accidentally started unpicking the outside leg (fixed that with the sewing machine), once the legs were unpicked, I started googling for tips and found this fantastic video.

I followed all her tips and found the skirt quickly came together. I double stitched all the seams and left the bottom of the skirt unhemmed for the frayed look.

I am happy with my first effort at making a recycled denim skirt.

  2. Compared to many other watches out there Panerai watches are simple, but the devil is in the polish and the details. The refined designs are flattering to the wearer and function well as timepieces. Replica Panerai watches smooth sides of the square Santos are enhanced by screws on the rubber coated black bezel and on the segmented rubber strap.My personal favorite line in the Replica Panerai Watches collection is the Santos. The Replica Panerai Watches100 XL is their larger version of the watch, the standard model is a bit small for my tastes.In a route one way, this influence makes a lot of sense - the purpose of both sets of images is to create striking pictures that put Valentino handbags in the centre.
