Next, I folded the jeans in half and cut along the marking I had made. 

Cut the inseam

I went ahead and cut the inside seam so that I would have the perfect skirt from this old pair of jeans. 

Cut the legs

Fill in the gaps 

I grabbed my scissors and cut the plain fabric from the legs of the old jeans.

Add sequins 

I thought it would be really cool to cover one half of the skirt in sequins. I placed the sequin piece on the skirt half and cut it to size. 

Apply fabric glue

The next step was to apply fabric glue along the edge of the half I would cover with sequins. 

Stick on the sequins

I placed the sequins on the skirt and gently pressed to stick them on.
