Here's another alternative for the skirt transformation that I posted before.
This is just a small sample piece that I will demonstrate. Sandwich a piece of printed fabric between two pieces of denim as shown.
Baste the edges together

Sew some random, curvy lines

Make a cut between the curved lines making sure you only cut the top layer of denim and then make several small cuts up to the seam line. (I hope that made sense)

Once this piece has been laundered a few times it will look like the picture below.

Sew this piece into your skirt as I described in my previous post.


  1. That's very cute! I could see my 22 year old daughter going for something like that.

  2. Just adorable! I love that technique - the frayed denim is really neat. I'm just in awe of how perfect your random curvy lines are!

  3. Very cute - I also like the fabric appliques!

  4. Wow! Love it and the concept. Hmmm thinking of other ways to use this right now. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  5. What a great tutorial and idea with these levis skirts! I loved this one! My six granddaughters would love to wear these. I am going hunting for some more jeans! Very nice! I don't understand why people aren't flocking to your blog... You are so talented!


  6. You have skills! Great tutorial and super idea.
    Thank you for linking up with Hodgepodge Friday. Hope to see you again!
