For my 10yr old daughter. The seams blend in more IRL, the denim and panels are both darker...but I had to use a lot of light to show them. Some ladies are selling adult sizes of these for $70!

Deconstructed denim skirt. Split the seam in a pair of pants, insert panels, add any extras you want...deconstructed/reconstructed denim skirt.

I don't think it would look good on me, but in the right context, it would look great! I find your commitment to creativity and stewardship in the face of an antagonistic world commendable. Good job! You and your top-knot chinchilla are doing your family proud.

LOL! Thanks. The PB discussion and 2 pots of coffee gave me the energy I needed ;)


Now you know, my other daughters are going to harass me this week...

I have to take mini breaks for my coffee, to move around for my back, and keep me from any frustrating parts (I love to sew, but it can make me snippy...breaks help with that as sewing is very mental). Sew a little, type a little, sew a lot, have a child try on, type a little, pin while on child...

Machine! Definitely machine! I COULD handsew if I ever had to, but not doing it just because I don't have to :D I do love embroidery, but haven't done any of that since I had my 4th child.

I have seen those before they are cool, your next project can be to buy a lot of ties and sow them together and make a tie dress they are also popular and cool

Nice job. I never learned how to sew but am considering taking some time to do that as it would be so much nicer to make my daughters skirts. She only likes to wear long skirts. My mom is extraordinary in her sewing/quilting skills. For some reason that creativity did not pass on to me in that form.

Jessica, Can you pick me up on your way? You would have to drive right by. I hear a woman's retreat calling!!!!:lol:

I love the skirt, it is adorable! I wish I could sew, but it is my downfall in life. I have never learned. I even had a neighbor ask if I would be willing to sew for him the other day and I had to confess I couldn't, because I didn't know how.

If any of you ladies, that don't know how to sew, can pick up a cheap machine (or find someone that has one collecting dust to give away), and find ONE woman to teach you to sew a dress, then the rest you can learn from books. There are tons of online tutorials also ;) I had one sewing lesson and the rest was self taught. I eventually started sewing for others out of my home, before we moved to PA. You can do alterations, crafts, dressmaking, etc. I'm looking at trying to get back into it.

That was the same with me. I watched my mom make a shirt and pretty much everything else I was able to figure out from looking at the pictures or whatever.
