|~ Pouffy Pants Turned Skirt

These used to be my favorite jeans. We called them my “pouffy pants” because the bottoms of the pant legs were about 3 times wider than normal pant legs. They were incredibly comfortable, modest, and flattering. But there was a problem. I never knew what shoes to wear with them. Without shoes, they were just…

|~ Long Denim Skirt

Its a fact this city girl has had to face: Denim skirts are incredibly {practical}.  Out here in the boonies, a girl lives in denim skirts. And in the winter, {long} denim skirts. Without pockets the durability is still there, but the functionality is diminished.  Back pockets are {perfect} for carrying bobby pins, cell phones, and driver’s licences.…

|~ Circle Skirts

I’m digging up projects from the bottom of my closet that I never showed y’all… these skirts I made nearly 3 years ago. This is a blue gingham circle skirt with pretty lace trim. You’ll notice on this one and the red one that I didn’t hem them- I just added lace. I’d heard horror…

|~ Jeans To Skirt

These “jeans-into-skirt” skirts have been popular for a while now, but I never was a huge fan of any I saw-probably because they aren’t terribly flattering. I did have some jeans we never wore though because the waistband was too big, so a few months ago I tried to see if I could make one…
