To make this skirt from my Dad’s old velvet pants, I took the side seams apart carefully to the waist. I left the waistband, fly, and pockets intact. I cut out the triangles for making the skirt flare from the leg bottoms of my pants. This was a fun recreation and fun to know I’m wearing my Dad’s pants.
