We all know we should dress for our body type, and that there are different cuts and fits of clothing specifically tailored to enhance our shapes, but there exists one universally flattering piece of clothing out there that we believe flatters all: the pencil skirt.
When purchased in the right size, a pencil skirt hugs your every contour and tapers inward toward the bottom, giving the illusion of a sexy hourglass figure. Learn how to repurpose old jeans into a pencil skirt with this video.
This is a simple sewing project, but it takes a little time to get through all the steps. Baggy jeans, boot cuts, or flares work best - skinny jeans will probably be too tight for this type of skirt. Follow these easy steps: 1. Cut along inner seam lines, up to zipper and up the butt line. 2. Reshape the fabric to come together in a skirt pattern. 3. Sew along the new seams with a tight stitch. Now get out there and flaunt that thang! Yay!
