Jeans to Skirt

I've been doing by best lately to give my sewing machine a good work out.  I'm sure it was feeling neglected. :)

Most projects I do come out of some perceived necessity.  This is another one of those times.

Our oldest is rather hard on her clothes - at least for a 7 year old girl.  


I'm just not ready, yet, to go out and replace all her jeans.  There's a growth spurt coming.  I can feel it in my bones - and so can she.  

I decided to patch a couple and then make a skirt out of one pair.  No knees to wear out in a skirt, right?   She seems to really like it.
A little ruffle in the back to pretty it up...
 Closer look.
I'm pleased.  :)
