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.
