Does your girl-child have any jeans lying around with worn-out knees? Do you have a buck to spend on fabric? Oh, and a sewing machine or access to one?
Then step right up. This looks to be one easy sewing project.
My friend Jana is a great seamstress. In fact, she used to have her own business sewing up hooded baby/kid towels with the most adorable flannel-lined hoods. And the Easter dresses she sews for herself and her daughters are beautiful.
I can sew, and have for me and my daughters but I like to keep it on the easy side, so this latest of Jana’s brainstorms really appeals to me.
Here’s the details, and if you have any questions, be sure to post them in comments and Jana will be glad to answer them.
Take two strips of fabric (determine the finished skirt length you want, allowing extra for seam allowances and hem), you could use two different fabrics or both the same as shown in the picture. Cut one a little bit wider than the other, gather them both. Attach one to the other and then both to the jean “skirt”. Take special note of the overall dress! So cute!!
Thank you so much, Jana!
