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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sew with a straight stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size will depend on what size jeans you choose. The jeans used for the waist should fit you.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 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)

Cassandra and Alex met at work - where they slaved away together for 13 years (until Alex abandoned Cassandra for a new company). Cassandra likes to say that they were like "an old pair of shoes" - they just fit. As a designer and writer respectively, they have naturally dove-tailing creative abilities. However, their shared inability to focus does, occasionally, make it tough to get anything done efficiently.
