Many of us have seen projects where people make a denim skirt out of a pair of jeans. Claudia from Sew Lil Time did the opposite, making a pair of jeans out of a denim skirt. Brilliant!! Most of the complicated details on a pair of jeans are around the waist/hip area, which you can repurpose from the skirt. If you don’t have a skirt long enough to make a pair of pants, you could use a shorter skirt to make a pair of shorts. Go to her tutorial to see how she did it.
