I turned my Levi 501's into a jean skirt. The jeans fit around the waist but were uncomfortably tight at my thighs. I am moderately pleased with the refashion. The added fabric is from a beautiful maxi dress that I wore once. Sadly yes, only once. It was too bare on top.
There is a little appliqué on the front pocket.
Sorry about the photo distortion. My DH took the photos and he is not comfortable with a camera. The skirt is the length in the first photo.
Here is the appliqué on the back pocket. I just cut out one of the paisley flowers from the fabric. I regret that I cut the left side straight.
I think it turned out more interesting than the first jeans skirt reconstruction. Which one do you prefer?
