Turn little girl jeans into a skirt

Surprise Me!

Refashion a child’s jeans into a skirt

Someone is growing at our house and her jeans have become to short!

So I cut off the legs just above the crotch.

I then cut the legs into four equal strips. I left the seam and a bit of fabric on the other side of the seam on each leg piece.  If you didn’t want to use the legs of the jeans for the ruffle a cute cotton fabric would work great and make an extra cute skirt.

Hem one edge on each leg piece. I folded under the edge next to the seam and edge stitched across the top to hem.

With right sides together sew each end together to make a tube. Raw side seams can be finished if desired.

On the edge without the hem zig zag over dental floss to gather. Gather.

Place skirt and ruffle right sides together matching the top edge of ruffle with bottom edge of jeans. Evenly space gathers around the skirt, pin.  Sew all the way around.
