I made this skirt for my daughter Rebekah. This picture doesn't show the pretty colors, it's purple and teal. I found the jeans at Goodwill for $2.50. The embroidered butterfly on the front was at the bottom of the pant leg. I think it's just adorable! Here's the back:
I also made a skirt for myself. I found 3 pairs of jeans at Goodwill for $3 each. Here's the first one I made. For the back, I added twice as much material so that I could walk better and it would have that "mermaid" look. I think it turned out good.
