How To Make A Skirt From Jean Pants

I often see sewing and clothes transformation tutorials and I finally decided to try making something myself.

I had an old pair of jeans that was way too low rise for me and I decided to transform it into a skirt. Even though I am not very good at sewing, I think it was a successful experiment. I watched a ton of tutorials like the one embeded in the post before that to be sure of what I am doing. In some of them, they used a sewing machine, in others they just used fabric glue. However, I saw mine by hand. Also, I decided to make my skirt longer and I made the bottom distressed. The easiest way to do that is by using plucks to remove the horizontal fibres that are visible from the wrong side. I have even seen skirts that look exactly like this in the store, but I think it’s always fun to give a new life to an old item.

Here are some more useful tutorials that show this method:

What about you, do you like sewing? Have you tried making something yourself?

  1. Cool! In high school, there was a subject that teaches students about crafting, sewing included. I am a dummy in such things so I deal with it the way I deal with my Algebra class. Find someone who knew what I don’t and who don’t know what I knew ???

  2. Awesome! Before I started working in the government, I would spend my time sewing. I can make pillowcases, curtains, and other items. I know a little in cutting and sewing clothes. But my most favorite is designing bags. When I was in college, I was accepting orders from my classmates. Lately, I realized that I haven’t been sewing anymore. Proof of this is the number of items which need to be repaired but could not do it anymore.

    This past week, I started planning of purchasing a high-speed sewing machine which I could use for my personal needs as well as for future business plan.
