Pants into Skirts

Before Christmas I converted a couple pairs of hand-me-down pants into cute little skirts for my girlies. The process is pretty simple - each only took about an hour to complete.

Go here for a detailed tutorial. I was not as meticulous. I didn't rip out the seams. I just cut them. The seams will fray which will add to the look, right? I also cut up the side seams, because a girl needs a little twirl!


  1. Love the idea. Thanks for the link. I bookmarked it for my daughter (who's a way better seamstress than me). :)
    Love your blog!
    In His love,
