Skirt from Jeans
I found instructions about how to make a skirt from a pair of jeans online (sorry, I can't find them anymore). Basically, you cut the legs to the skirt length you want, unpick ALL the seams (in the top and bottom parts), and use the pieces from the legs to fill in the gaps between the seams at the top (if that makes sense). I used a pair of jeans with paint on the bottoms, and voilà! The key is to make sure the jeans fit well in the waist before you start cutting them up. The jeans I used were made of stretchy material, and that definitely helps the skirt to fit better.
