Today I took a pair of denim jeans, a discarded bed ruffle, some eyelet lace found at a thrift store and recreated the skirt on the following pin (kind of)
I did learn that you want to use softer or thinner fabric than I used. I will wash this and let it dry with rubber bands around it to pull it in. I am not as happy with the fullness that it has, although on...it looks much better than I would have expected.
These jeans had spray foam and paint on the knees. They were a LOST cause.
