Another review was just posted about this idea and the reviewer pointed to your review as an inspiration. I missed you review the first go round and just wanted to chime in and say how adorable your skirt is. I can't wait to get started on some skirts for my DD & me! :-)

This is tres cool and I can't believe how wonderful the instructions are that you found! How did I ever miss those! I think the choice of the color and type of denim makes a big difference in these skirts and you chose the perfect specimen of used jeans. Bravo!

We used to do this in the '60's -- really good ideas last a long time LOL!! We used to make more of an A line. The way you did it gives the skirt a very modern shape - nicely done!! It looks great on you.

How *CUTE*!! I love your skirt, it looks adorable on you-I bookmarked this, I would love to make this too. Oh and after three boys, I finally have a little girl-whom I was sure would be a boy :o) so you never know :oP Thanks for the review!

What can be wrong with a practically freek skirt that is extremely comfortable? Absolutely nothing - it looks great on you and now you can get double wear out of those old jeans.

Great transformed jeans skirt, a classic one. I made mine about 30 years ago.

Great skirt - I love the flirty lines of the skirt, but the length makes it perfect for business wear (in a casual office). I have been thinking about doing this with an old pair - thanks for the link! (Also, nice ideas for embellishing or changing the pattern up.)
