More Jean-Top Skirts ~ Cute, Huh?

Last year I scrounged up a handful of jeans that I intended to make into purses or aprons.

Since I tend to scrounge up too many things I haven’t done that yet, but I did come across a couple that I turned into few more jean skirts! You can find the first batch I made here.

First I made these two adult size skirts… too big for me—thank goodness—but I had them, so I made them. The one on the left is a denim skirt with those rarely used cloth napkins attached on the diagonal. Very light and fluttery.

On the right, it’s a black pair of jeans with a cotton skirt detached from the waistband. Both are cool and comfy with all the handy pockets intact.

I admit I should have pressed the hankies before I took this picture, but “C’est le vie”…

So following up on this I wanted to do some more with the cloth napkins… which are bountiful at estate sales, and way underappreciated.

Again, I should have cleaned off the ironing board and pressed these, but you get the idea.

This was a Gymboree size 5 jean with pink stitching.

I found an oversized napkin—only one—and cut it into quarters. I hemmed the raw edges of the napkin pieces and then trimmed the other two sides with rick rack, pink lace, and more rick rack.

The other pair of jeans was from Arizona & Co., size 10 1/2 Plus.

I cut three lace edged napkins in half on the diagonal—making six pieces—and layered them before stitching them to the bottom of the jeans top.
