Free Instructions Recycle Jeans into Skirt

Product Information
Recycle Old Jeans Into a Skirt
Sewing a skirt from old jeans is a recycled project from the seventies. It’s simple, fun, and just about free and can also be a No Sew Project. All you need is a seam ripper, thread and a sewing machine, or fabric glue, and of course a cast-off pair of jeans. The jeans should still fit you well on the waist and hips. So if you have a pair of pants that are too tight in the crotch area or legs, or have become too short, these should be perfectly useable.
Instructions:
1. Cut off the jeans at the knee or

below depending on how short you want your skirt to be.
2. Open the inside leg of the jeans using a seam-ripper
3. Open the front center seam to approximately 1" below the zipper end of the fly.
5. Place jeans on a flat surface. Place the front center seam over the other side of front center. If it does not lie flat than the seam needs to be opened further up. Pin the seam in
place and follow the same procedure for the back. These center seams can

6. Turn skirt to inside and trim extra fabric of the overlap away.
