Turn Skinny jeans into a pencil skirt? Answered

Regular cut jeans make a flared, or A-line hem. Anything specific I should do to give it a pencil shape, and make it tighter around the bottom?

The answer depends on which part of the jeans you wish to make the skirt from. If you intend to make it using the current zipper and waist, or prefer to cut it from lower in the legs and re-use the zipper (i.e. a "bandless skirt) let me know, and I'll walk you through it. (BTW: I've been sewing for 30 years, and have my own design company...I can make pretty much anything from scratch and without a pattern.(
