I have searched Kohl’s, Target and Walmart for a plain denim skirt for Katie to wear. I can’t find one anywhere! I remember seeing tutorials on how to turn a pair of jeans into a skirt (sometimes called a “skant”), so I decided to try my hand at this. I mostly referred to Hazelruthes’ tutorial, with a little more gleaned from Threadbanger’s tips here.
We started with a pair of jeans that are almost on the too-tight side of things, plus they had a hole in one knee. I figured I’d rather learn on a pair that would be okay to mess up instead of a nicer pair that *might* get ruined on the first try.
I think it turned out pretty well, especially for my first try! And it didn’t take too long – I did it all during Jackson’s nap. I was going to sew a ribbon hem around the bottom (like I did with these jeans turned into shorts), but Katie wanted to leave it bare. However, she wanted to jazz it up a bit so I let her be creative with the Sharpies.
I can’t wait to try it again with some other jeans!
