YOU WILL NEED
A pair of jeans
Large fabric scraps (lace)
Cut the denim jeans to your desired length of skirt, leave a couple of extra inches more than needed. Save the leg sections for later to fill the gaps.
Cut along the seam that runs up to the zip. Do this at the front and back of the skirt then tuck and pin. At the back cut approximately 4 inches.
Tuck, pin and sew the overlap denim section at the front and repeat at the back.
Slot a section of denim in the triangular gap at the back and front and sew. Take the excess denim from the leftover leg.
Cut off any excess denim and tidy.
Measure and cut out a template of your pocket onto your card. Place the card over the pocket to make sure it fits.
Draw around the template on your lace fabric then add an extra cm at the edges. Fold this 1cm in and iron down the sides, pin and sew. This keeps the material neat and tidy and stops any fraying which may occur. The lace detail pockets are now ready to sew to your skirt.
Pin and sew the lace pockets on to the pockets of the jeans.
Now, from a pair of jeans, you have a gorgeous lace detail skirt.
