First, take out your old jeans, lay them out flat on the table and cut about 12 inches off the legs. If you want, you can make it shorter later.
 
Love this! I'm an Apostolic Pentecostal, and our churches teaches how skirts are modest and we should dress modest, so I made the decision to stop wearing pants and only skirts and dresses. And jean skirts are like most Apostolics' go-to for everyday wear, but they're hard to find, and expensive. So now, i have a way to recycle my old jeans instead of throwing them away, and I'll get the new skirts I want!
Very gud attempt....Thank I will try....

I bought a skirt just like this three weeks ago and paid $80 for it. While I was buying it I kept thinking "I bet I could make one." And it looks like I could have. Great instructions. Thanks for sharing!
