A couple pairs of the jeans I have in my stash belong to my granddaughter, Rami. These pants are in good shape but a bit short (why do those kids continue to grow!!), so why not make a skirt! she loves loooonnnngggg skirts so I figure I will make a small hem.
Kristina helped out by ripping the inside seam out for me.

I then used some fabric I had here to make the panel inserts by laying some paper between the legs and marking out the opening.

The pointy part was a bit hard for me to get straight but overall I think it worked out pretty good.

need step by step instructions visit: http://www.notmartha.org/tomake/jeanskirt/
This is the pattern/instructions I used. Thanks notmartha! :)

If you make a skirt or have other ideas for me on ways to reuse some jeans, please send a note! Thanks for reading, Millie
