I recently saw Lindsey‘s post on the Return of the Jean Skirt and read that denim skirts are coming back in style and I couldn’t be happier! I have a dark denim pencil skirt I picked up from Target a couple years ago and I love wearing it, but this skirt is one I made years ago before I even had a blog! It’s flare at the bottom makes it really fun to wear too!
I made this skirt out of two pairs of old jeans, using a New Look pattern to go by. Knowing the color of the denim was different, I kept the darker denim in the middle and the lighter denim on the sides (the back looks exactly the same as the front so the side seams match). I added the brown piping for interest and also because I didn’t want to hem the jean material. This is actually a really heavy skirt!
I accented today’s look with yellow accessories, however I have worn this tee with a bright pink skirt too. This is a great weekend casual look or great for going out for an evening of family fun at the park.
