Upcycling Your Boring Denim Skirt

I’m a big fan of denim skirts. I practically live in them during the summer months, pairing them with my trust Converse shoes and a breezy t-shirt.

But lately, my denim skirts have been a little…well…boring. They needed some pizazz. And now’s the perfect time to spruce them up a bit because it’s far too cold to wear them.

I started searching online for creative ways to liven up my denim skirts, and I was amazed at the creative designs that are out there.

Like, for instance, the skirt pictured on the left, from Chrisia Designs. She has used recycled jeans and African Batik fabric to create a vibrant and 100% unique skirt. I would love to wear this come June!

I found a ton of other wonderful ideas as well.

For instance, take a look at this one from Buffalo Girl Vintage. This one makes me think of summer afternoons, long hair, and gypsies.

Or, check out this awesome creation from Ella2Day on Etsy. She took several different pairs of jeans and sewed them together to make a funky, geometric design on her skirt.

And here’s one more fun design that I love. This cute skirt, created by tracyray98, on Etsy, pairs a denim skirt with tie-dyed fabric.

After seeing all these wonderful ideas I’m super excited to upcycle my denim skirts into something really vibrant and fun. I’d love to use some kalamkari fabric from India. It would pair perfectly with the new kalamkari handbags bags we have coming in soon!

  1. Thank-you for the link to my pieced denim skirt. It is one of my favorites. A correction though. My shop name is Denim Diva 2day. The skirt is named Ella2day.

    Glad you like my design.

    Enjoy the coming spring.
