Sanity was maintained and happiness was achieved today by sending the kids to the pool for a few hours while I worked on this very mindless project. I knew that I had seen instructions on how to transform a pair of jeans into a skirt somewhere, so I Googled and found this site. It was ridiculously easy!
What makes a teenaged girl happy? What else -- clothes! What makes a mother of a teenaged girl happy and sane? Not having to spend money on clothes for the teenaged girl!
The Deconstructed Denim Skirt
These skirts are everywhere. Saw one at the Gap.
Gap Denim Skirt -- $63.00. Two hours of quiet while I make the same skirt -- PRICELESS.
