Jeans Deconstructed!


Well, this is an "alteration project". Pity I did not get a picture of the old Levi's jeans that became too big when I lost some weight (proud here ;.). They were perfect for some kind of job to be done on them, becasue of the fabric's softness and the bellbottoms, which meant a lot of material.



Well, I had not planned the whole thing ahead. First, I cut the legs off to get a miniskirt. Which I did not like much. So I found some old inherited fabric (originally to make some men's undies), and I added that flare at the bottom.




























For the top I used this sleveless shirt, which required no much fabric. I topstiched every seam with contrating brown thick thread, and used some clips to close it at the front. I did not plan to wear it alltogether, but I now see it is not bad... what do you think?


I have been sewing like mad these days previous to holiday making, but I will publish them designs when we are back, so I can photograph them in the real world. So, see you next month!
