Project #10: Sweatpants into skirts

I started this project 2 years ago.  I finished one of the skirts just this morning.
To start with I had 2 pairs of boy’s sweat pants.  I didn’t start out to make skirts, just to try to re-groovenate sweat pants that my son outgrew into something my daughter would wear.
The first attempt:  I just added some trim.  Verdict:  Not wearable by daughter.

Second attempt: Add some applique and embroidery…



The verdict:  If she were older, she would have said, “It makes my butt look big.”
Attempt #3:  Make it into a skirt!  Like those ones made from jeans…


Finally something that she can wear in public.
