Nothing is cooler -- and at the same time modest -- than a maxi skirt in the summer! Inspired by this pin, I converted an old pair of holey jeans into a cool, flowy maxi skirt.
I added a tiered skirt of cotton voile from Fabric.com with an underskirt of plain bleached muslin.
I was careful to pull the front pockets inside out before cutting and sewing so I wouldn't render them useless. I love pockets and wouldn't want to sacrifice them!
Similarly, I did not want to cut off the back pockets! So before cutting off the lower portion of the jeans, I picked out the stitching on the lower half of the pockets. After adding the skirt, I re-stitched the pockets down right overtop the voile! It's a detail I'm in love with!
It's comfy, cool, and versatile!
And feminine! I feel so pretty when I wear it!
Perfect for summer!
