Refashion | Old Jeggings + Fabric Remnant

I'm not a huge fan of faux denim but I can't deny how comfortable it is. These skinny jeans in particular or rather jeggings were super comfy. The knees eventually faded out though and the fabric is starting to pucker, like most stretchy material does around the inner thighs area. I love the waistband on this so I had to keep it going. I chopped the legs off and put those pieces towards bags. Now I had this top piece left and a fabric remnant (It's rayon. It has a subtle stretch to it and drapes very well) I got it at Joann fabrics. Put them together and you have an easy maxi skirt.

This fabric remnant was about 1.5" yards in width and 31" in length. The denim mini is 7" at it's shortest in the middle front and 9.5" long at the middle back. Just gather the fabric and attach it to the denim mini. Serge the raw edges either before attaching them like I did or at the end altogether.

Apparently I take long strides when I walk so I will have to open up a side or both sides so that I can extend my legs out more. Yeah, I would've liked a little more fabric but this was a remnant I thought matched really well with the denim, I had to make it work.

    I have a pair of black pants, they are a velvet style fabric, that I think this idea would be lovely with. :) Thank you!

    I was just about to retire a pair of dark wash jeggings that I loved but were too worn in stress areas. So excited to give them a second life!
