DIY: Crop Top & Mini Skirt from 1 Pair of Jeans

Hi!
I’m really excited about this diy project because it’s so unique and cool. I made a crop top and mini skirt from one, that’s right one pair of denim jeans! How awesome is that? I literally grabbed a pair of jeans out of my closet that I haven’t worn in forever to make this outfit. So, make sure you don’t throw out those jeans because you can always upcycle and make something new and fabulous from something old and dated. Please share if you make this project, I would love to see.
