Do-It-Yourself reconstructed clothing is hot. I was drawn to reconstructed skirts at a Levi store in Chicago for $50 bucks and said to myself.....I can make that. My version is a low-waisted pair of $5 Levi jeans from the DAV. Pulled apart the inside seams, laid them flat and inserted a leg from another pair of old jeans and voila ... a comfy denim skirt.
Tip: Be sure to use a heavy denim thread and needle in your machine.
