Upcycle: Torn Jeans to Girl's Dress

Day 13/31:

My jeans were toast. They had been worn and washed so many times they just gave out. But for the most part the legs were okay so I decided to give them a new life.

I don't have a how to because I was definitely winging this one. I cute the legs off and figured out where I wanted the seams to show up on her dress. Then I laid the two sides out and used a tshirt to trace the armholes and neckline. I added an extra strip around the bottom to ruffle it a bit and added small arms pieces as well.

The front

The back

I love the little ruffle. I think it finishes it off nicely.

Erin was really good about giving me a nice face for the picture

And we had to try getting a bit silly, too because why not?
