Houston, Texas, ...
The zipper broke on a pair of jeans I liked, so I dismantled the jeans and put a zipper in the back.
Then, I took the entire pair of jeans apart, cut both front & back off beneath the zipper, sewed a leg to both front and back (to make an asymmetrical hemline).
(I used an old retro apron from the thrift store to hide the seams and trim the pockets, and then I sewed the apron belt to the jeans’ old waistband.)
Then, I used the Sidonie pattern to cut the pieces into an a-line skirt.
Then, I sewed the waistband back on, backwards (because the working zipper is now in the back).
Fun to do, and I like it, but I suspect the pockets are a little bit much!
Old pair of jeans; thrift store apron.
