Take a pair of pants and turn them into a skirt. This tutorial shows how to keep the centre seam of the jeans straight, with no bends or folds to the side - a neat little trick that results in a lovely finish.
Barbara, from At Home by the Baye, shows how she refashioned her pants into a skirt with triangular inserts front and back. Look at the centre seam where it joins the triangle. That's the bit where most tutorials will have you bend the centre seam and sew it down. I like the straight seam finish.
Barbara added her refashion, to the Women's Skirts link party. There's a few new links you may like to check out...
