How to make a denim skirt
Turn your old jeans into a new skirt
Making your own one-of-a-kind denim skirt is easier than you might think. With this simple DIY project, you can upcycle a pair of old jeans and turn it into a brand-new denim skirt.
What you'll need:
- Tape measure
- Seam ripper
- Sewing machine
Use your seam ripper to remove the jean’s inner seam stitches.
TIP:This first step can take 30-45 minutes, so cue up your favorite podcast or playlist and get in the zone.
Fold over the flap and pin it together.
Use your tape measure to find your preferred skirt length (we’re loving a mini!) and mark with chalk.
Cut along the chalk marks with your scissors.
Measure the triangular open area and cut a denim piece from your scraps to cover it.
Once you’ve positioned and pinned the new piece, use your sewing machine to lock it in place.
Remove any excess fabric or loose threads and voila! You have a brand-new skirt!
