Jeans + Sew-No-More + Scissors = FTW Skirt!

Okay, I've been doing this since my college days.

I wasn't really satisfied with the first one, so from a skirt, I made into a bag. [I just sewed the bottom hem together, then used an old belt as the strap. Tada, instant bag!] The second one was better, as I used it for the last three years of college. The third one was another experiment, wherein I combined my crocheting skills with my sewing skills. I have no idea though where it is now.

So, how do I do it?

First, I get an old pair of jeans. A pair good enough to look at when it becomes a skirt, but I won't mind tossing out if you made the skirt too short.

Then I cut off the bottom part.

Jeans --> Shorts


By this time I fairly have an idea on how short I want the skirt to be so the length above should be really longer than the length you have in mind.

Okay, next, I separate the (inner) seams.

Until I get something like this:

Seams ripped out already


And then I lay out the seams so that it will resemble and function as a skirt:

Ready to become a skirt


Now the next part is the hard part: sewing everything up. But then I found a better and faster way for this project: SEW NO MORE!

Sew No More!!!


All you got to do is lay out a thin layer of the glue on the parts of the cloth you want to come together.

Sew-no-more working!


Tada! Actually, I just wanted to use it to hold everything together muna before I sew. But then when I saw that it held nicely naman and won't rip out (in fairness di naman kasi ganon ka-fitted yung skirt sakin so really no worries there haha).

And so, the finished product, after sewing-no-more, and a few more adjustments to the length:

The finished product


Yeah, I know, it's wide. Eh sa malaki balakang ko talaga eh! Tsaka butt ko! Kebs, at least may "reason" kunyari -- nanganak nako :P

And of course to see if it works on my body:

Is it too short?


Too short ba?

Oh well, I'll be taking it out for a test run this Saturday night ;) I'll bring an extra pair of jeans just in case the glued-on seams pop out hahaha.
