I killed my favorite pair of jeans last week. It was terrible. I was out on date night with my husband when a worn spot on my inner thigh became a hole.
I ended up learning the most from this tutorial on Spruce Crafts.
I absolutely did not take pictures of the in-process conversion. That's not my thing and I'm a pretty darn slow seamstress to begin with. It did take me over an hour just to rip out the seams! I used up most of an evening to get the skirt to the point shown below.
Yep, it's not hemmed.
After over 3 hours you might be thinking, "Dang, girl. You should be done!"
Like I said, I AM NOT A FAST SEAMSTRESS.
I'm taking this beauty with me when I visit my mom. She will help me hem it up correctly (i.e. adjusting it so the back hits the same location relative to my leg as the front.
I am quite proud of how it's turned out thus far as it has a good fit.
