Jeans to Skirt

Hey everyone! I've been checking out sewing blogs quite a bit lately - I can't get enough of them! I found this quick, easy idea on one of them. Take an old pair of pants/jeans that you don't wear anymore for whatever reason, cut on the seam between the legs, cut the length you want, then insert fabric. One idea that I found on a separate blog was to cut in four (4) different "V" shapes, so that would be an additional two (2) on the side. I thought it was unnecessary, so I didn't do that, but once I put the skirt on, I could see why. Since they were once pants, they were kind of wide at the hip then narrowed out in a funny shape towards the bottom when on. I'll definitely do this again, but with the two extra pieces on the sides.

One down, a million to go!

As I may or may have not mentioned, I can't wait to start an online boutique.

There were a million tiny steps to proceed with the process, and a big one was having a dress makers dummy...they are so expensive!
So, I searched online and saw how to make my I'm proud to present my own dressmakers dummy!
I'll be making another one tomorrow of my good friend, which will be a small size and will help me gauge body types when I'm making clothes and/or creating cute vintage outfits.
I'm excited to share this with you all, it's the beginning of a new chapter for me...!
