Ok, so two weeks ago I started a jeans make over with intent to turn it into a jean skirt. I found a slight, but hilarious, problem. As I couldn’t find any fabric I liked to cover up my air conditioned behind, I put off the project for another week, working instead on a few overalls.
This week I’m back with part two of Jeans Skirt or shall I say, “Take Two.” As you remember the legs of the jeans were a bit too narrow to sew together to make a flowing skirt.
I had a tough time finding fabric I liked because the jeans had a raised beige on beige design. All the fabric I found had patterns which clashed terribly or were too thick. The other day I was just sitting here minding my own business when a thought struck me. I could combine two, two, two Purple Projects in one!
Remember a while back I purple-ized a pillow case? Well, it was just the perfect fabric and size to add to my new flowing jeans skirt! Then I added some dark purple bows and you have yourself a flowing jeans and pillow case skirt!
In the, You Ain’t Gonna Believe This One file, I uploaded the pictures I took of this two week long sewing debacle, but I couldn’t, for the life of me, find the file on my computer! It HAS to be there, but I still can’t find it. I lost several other purple pictures, but I was able to take more pictures of this project so I could post them for you.
I love it when a plan comes together! Ok it was about three or four plans, but hey, it came together! Ok…the sewing was waaaay too much work and I don’t recommend doing this unless you are a seamstress on a mission! But, what do you think? Someone tell me this was worth it. I’m not even sure I can wear this skirt. I live in ARIDzona and it’s just too HOT!
Have a GRAPE Day!
