Mint green is my favorite color, so I jumped with joy when a mint green jeans was given to me! 😀
The jeans was old, faded and soft from washing. But I liked the mint green denim fabric and the natural used look.
The jeans had an unflattering carrot cut with pleats at the waist. So I thought I’d turn the jeans into an A-line skirt.
I cut off the waistband because I prefer skirts with a low waist. Then I frayed the edges with a needle.
I love the look of frayed edges (on purpose) even though frayed edges take longer than an ordinary hem!
I cut off the legs below the knee and used the cut-off jeans leg to fill in the gap. Then I frayed the hem.
I used leftover scraps to make matching DIY espadrilles! 😀 There was just enough fabric left so that I could piece the scraps together for the shoes! I’ll soon post the tutorial for the DIY espadrilles.
We took the photos in grandma’s beautiful garden. I loved this large willow tree since I was a child.
I love my new mint green denim skirt! It’s beautiful and comfortable to wear. I’m wearing it while I’m writing this post, lol! 😀
