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?
