Now he cannot wear them any more because each is shredding at the crotch (and I fed and put weight on my husband so he won't fit into them ever again, anyway). What to do?

I hope this comes out as a good tutorial for making simple refashioned jeans skirts: that's the goal.

|Where to cut at the crotch, front & back marked in pink!|
|I removed inside seams...|
|Plan: Cut the leg inserts at the seam where the pink marker is...|
|How do you like the patchwork?!!?|
|One leg insert cut! Check out those patches|
|Removed the cuffs from insert pieces|
|Pinned front & rear inserts, starting each at the crotch top|
|Measured for a 28" length from bottom of the belt line|
Lastly, I re-measured the length ("measure twice, cut once), then cut along the horizontal pink line. Finally, I sewed the inserts on my trusty Singer.
Now I am wearing my new A-line Skirt! And to think it all started with a fresh cuppa java!!
