Description

I’ve wanted this kind of thing for ages. A mini skirt with dungaree type straps with pockets on the front. Almost like an apron. I was thinking about what fabric to make it in then I remembered a pair of jeans that I bought (nearly 10 years ago!) that I haven’t worn for ages. They are a black stretch denim with a button fly.

I’m really pleased with how the whole thing turned out. I lopped the legs off the jeans and neatened up the hem of the skirt, then made the straps from the jean legs.

Material Notes

An old pair of black stretch denim jeans.
