Creative DIY Way To Upcycle Jeans into a Skirt ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท Brazil Inspired ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท Culture Couture


hi loves The inspiration for this week’s tutorial is from a Brazilian novela I love called Totalmente Demais. I’ve seen so many looks I want to DIY so you’ll be seeing more of this! Today’s tutorial is inspired by the character Lu who wore this cute overall jeans skirt. Although she is crying in this shot, she absolutely looks faboo! For this tutorial you’ll need 1 pair of old jeans and a seam ripper I got my jeans from C&A 3 years ago Place a pencil skirt on top and cut the legs Then use a seam ripper to open it up I pulled the fabric open on the sides so the thread shows, then I place the seam ripper under it to rip it open Now you can rip this part open Flip it to the back and then place the two ends together and cut it so the line it forms is straight, otherwise it will create bumps Hem both sides first before you sew it together Then pin the front sides. I only did the top part which created a nice asymmetrical skirt look Sew the front, back and hem the bottom Put your skirt on and measure the distance to create the straps. Cut yours slightly shorter than this otherwise your straps will fall off each time you sit. Mine happen to be 3 times the remaining parts of the legs so I cut this three times The right side of the pieces face each other when I pin the top
Make sure the right side of the third and second piece face each other when you pin this one too Sew it and hem it on both sides the right sides of the straps face the right side of the skirts when I pin this both on the front and back Sew this last bit and you’re done! Make sure you use the right needle for jeans fabric as it’s thicker than other materials and double check if you can sew jeans on your machine If you enjoyed this tutorial click like and subscribe for more videos And I would be very grateful if you share this video with your friends Thanks for watching Click here to buy the tutorial for this sexy black dress and start sewing today
