For this project, we will be using the upper part of the pants to create a nicely fitting waistline. A good candidate would be a pair of jeans that fit you well, but maybe have too much wear on the legs. Those with interesting embroidery on pockets are a plus.
The tank top will be cut and used for the length of the skirt. Look for a skirt that will coordinate well with the jeans in color and design. Printed images at the chest of the tank top can be cut off during the process.
Next, let's mercilessly chop them up.
