Making skirts out of jeans is so easy and quick. I've done a couple of them now. I added a floral border to this one.
I'm getting quite an old hand at whipping up these kiddie shorts too. I've made quite a few pairs now out of old pants and t-shirts. I had my first go at applique on this pair. The star is made from the leftovers of an old polar fleece jumper that I made into tracksuit pants a few months ago.
Two new wardrobe pieces out of what most people would chuck away; not bad for a days work by a total novice sewer!
