Re-invented jeans

As an interlude from making dresses from 'found linens' and spurred on from the whole concept of SwapORama here is my lateset THANG!
Take one pair of fave jeans that have become a little ho hum, take a big ole skirt with beautiful silk embroidery, and combine :)
I had loads of fabric to work with as the skirt was enormous and I have enough to do another pair, yipee!
With sheer luck the length of the two tiers worked perfectly so I just used the front part of the skirt, bottom 2/3 and cut in half. Joined each one with a seam that ran down the inside leg and attached them to the jeans with a seam, then turned them over and did a top stitch.
My new very eyecatching hippie jeans!
