This skirt was a lot of fun to make. I had cut the pant legs off another pair of pants that I just wanted the waistband from and saved them because of how pretty the white embroidery was. I was unsure of what to do with it as yet. Then, Raegan decided she wanted a skirt, so she took some blue jeans, chopped off the bottoms(she likes t-length skirts) and started looking for fabric to put in it.
I then stepped in and told her I had something that would work...the bottoms of the other pair!
So, We attatched them...and VOILA...an adorable skirt! People usually ask what store it came from! (One question, Raegan...what's it like to be so skinny?)
On this skirt, Raegan did most of the work herself. I helped by finding her the cute camo fabric with blue embroidered butterflies in my stash as well as the butterfly sew-on patch.
She did the leg chopping, seam ripping, fabric cutting, and most of the sewing. Her sewing machine was getting ready to bite the dust, so, I did help her with the top part and the hems. (this skirt is a little tight now, so she's going to give it away to someone else)
I will be posting a basic tutorial on these soon......as well as some fun variations!
