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.)

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.

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.

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!

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! :-)
