Have you ever wondered how to Refashion a pair of Jeans into a Jean Skirt? This step-by-step tutorial will show you exactly how to make an adorable jean skirt for girls or ladies of any age or size from a pair of denim pants. Forget Tommy Hilfiger, LL Bean, Saks Fifth Avenue (or any other designer or retailer selling similar skirts this season!) - you can make this one for just a fraction of the price. Of course, if you already have a pair of jeans on hand that will work, you can do it for free!
- Jeans (something that fits your waist and hips, It's ok if they're too short!)
- Seam ripper
- Sharp fabric scissors
- Sewing machine and thread
Step 1: You need to remove the inside seam of the jeans, from one side to the other side. Use a seam ripper for this step. (This is the step that takes the longest...promise!)
Your pants should look similar to this when finished ripping out the inside seam.
Step 2: Next, I fold the pant legs up to an inch or so above the crotch area. After measuring to make sure each leg is folded at the same length, I use my fabric scissors to cut off each leg at the fold.
Step 5: Insert another denim piece into the front and pin down.
Step 6: After getting the front and back of skirt pieced together and pinned, it is time to sew.
Remove all pins from skirt and use your fabric scissors to cut the excess material out. Trim any threads or imperfections that may bother you. I personally like a raw edge for my denim skirts, so I do not fold over and sew a folded hem. I only sew around the raw edge, so it does not fray too much. And now...you have refashioned that pair of jeans into a jean skirt!
Hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and you are inspired to refashion a pair of your pants into an adorable skirt!
