Description

Threw together a few old jeans and army pants and shirts to create these patchwork skirts. I patched them together as I went, pleating and folding the panels back onto themselves.

    As always, you are completely brilliant! :^D I’ve toyed with this idea, and you’ve shown me that it is possible! Maybe I’ll get brave enough to actually try it myself on my next break from school! :^D

      Thanks so much! The great thing is if they are $5 thrift store jeans there is nothing to worry about if you destroy it!
