Girls Jeans Skirt

Hey Everyone!
I was going through my stash of denim and I found a darling pair of jeans that my girl had long grown out of. The adorable back pockets made me think of a skirt that I had recently thrifted. I figured that this would be an excellent time to finally try out my new ruffler for the sewing machine. There is no tutorial because this was really an experiment for me. It worked so well that I will make a tute for the next one.

The original skirt. Don't ya love the paisleys?

I first cut the legs off the jeans and straightened the cut. I then ruffled the bottom layer and sewed it onto the denim.

Don't these colors just go so well together?

I ruffled the top layer then topstitched it onto the skirt, adding that black ribbon detail at the same time.

The skirt is full enough for twirling.

Hehe, I like this so much maybe I should make one in my size  ;-)
