I have a whole bunch of jeans languishing in my drawers. Too big, too small, none just right (which is why I keep buying more.) And I actually prefer to wear skirts anyway, so a jeans conversion was always imminent.
I have had a go at a jeans to wrap-around-skirt conversion before, but this one is much more wearable. I love the idea of a wrap around, but they can be a bit drafty/flashy if you catch my drift.
For this one I used this tutorial which is very easy to follow. Is it too nerdy to admit I was watching Project Runway Canada on YouTube while I was ripping apart seams?
The back panel on mine looks a little funny as it is not as worn as the seat of my pants were, but it is OK. I am not aiming for perfection here.
It is very gratifying to use something that I never wore and refashion it in such as way that I am getting a lot of use out of. Yeah!
PS Look at Caleb pose!
