cargo jeans into a long skirt

I wish I could take credit but my mom did all the sewing. Thanks Mom :)

What she did-
ripped the front seam to the zipper
ripped the back seam to the belt loops
sewed front seam together
cut off the 'point' of the back crotch area
used chalk to make a new stitch line from belt loops (almost a straight line)
pinned it
TRY ON (too tight in rear)
re-pinned adding about an inch
TRY ON (fits!!!)
machine stitch the seam to desired kick slit
hand stitch the bottom edge (wear cuff was)
machine stitch kick slit edges

it is more open in back than I would like but with it being summer I am leaving it. Come winter we will add some coordinating fabric and close it up
