Pattern Description:

Back in the stone age, when I was in high school, maxi skirts were the rage. And the coolest maxi you could have was one made from an old pair of blue jeans. I'm going to share my tutorial on how to make your very own, awesome jean maxi skirt. Enjoy.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size will depend on what size jeans you choose. The jeans used for the waist should fit you.


  • 2 pair of jeans (or one pair of jeans and fabric to fill in the "center" of the skirt)
  • A seam ripper and/or a really good pair of sharp pointed scissors (snips)
  • A spool of "jean thread" (it's kind of orange and heavy)
  • A denim needle for your sewing machine. DO NOT SKIP THIS. You need a heavy duty needle to get through the multiple layers of denim.
  • An iron and ironing board
