Over at Mabey She Made It, Lisa had a pair of jeans that she wasn’t getting much use out of, anymore. “They looked good on me, but the rise was just too low for me to be comfortable in,” she tells us. Time for a refashion! (FYI, Lisa didn’t have a before picture, so her jeans were similar to the ones pictured below.)
Since she didn’t already own a denim skirt, that was the direction Lisa headed with this refashion. She knew a skirt would solve the problem of the low-rise. Instead of ripping the seams of her jeans out, she cut the jeans along the seam lines. That way she could incorporate the seams in the skirt design. She added a panel to the front of the jeans. Instead of hemming the skirt, she allowed the edges to fray slightly. Doesn’t it look great on her?
