Total Time 1 to 2 hours Ages school-age

Turn your daughter's outgrown jeans into a trendy no-sew denim skirt.

What you'll need

  • Old jeans
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape
  • Glue

How to make it

  1. Skirting the Pants: Step 1

    Start by cutting the legs off the jeans just above the knee and setting the scraps aside. Use scissors to open the inner leg seams. Then, open the front seam to one inch below the zipper (A), and the back seam to about 7 inches below the waist.

  2. Skirting the Pants: Step 2

    Cut denim triangles from the scraps to fill the spaces in the front and back of the skirt. Use fabric glue to attach them in place. Secure the seams with masking tape until they dry.

  3. Skirting the Pants: Step 3

    For a hem, turn the skirt inside out and fold the edge to your desired length. Glue it in place, and again use tape to hold it while it dries.
