Swish swish… it’s all the rage!

My super-secret* sources tell me that the HOT fashion for this spring will be

Jean Skirts!

And that’s not skirts made out of denim fabric, but skirts made from honest-to-goodness broken-in, well-loved jeans. Now some of us remember these skirts from another decade, but this time around, they are new, and fresh, and best of all, they’re repurposed!

This first example is clever: the skirt portion is actually legs from other pairs of jeans. See how they’re used upside down, so the whiskers make a hem detail?

Next. the skirt I want: loving denim and lace, especially with the vintage vibe! Wondering if I can find some old lace curtains or a tablecloth to tea-dye for a skirt that’s so boho it’s chic!

.

Easy how-to photos here. I’m thinking an old, soft-from-washing print tablecloth or batik bedspread. What fabric would you use?
