Turn dads old cargo pants/shorts into this Jumperall Dress for your little angels. Jeans has been such a trendy fashion for men and women for decades, and it’s far more than the original function but chic addition for ladies now. An old pair of jeans is either distressed to perfection and fits like a glove, or simply last season’s news. We can refashion your jeans into new trendy pieces as we collected before or turn those worn or old pair of jeans into stylish new summer wear. Putting pockets to a dress can be quite troubling for someone with basic sewing skills, but simply sticking already existing ones is quite easy. By using the pockets from dad’s cargo pants and some fabric, you can make your girl this fun recycled skirt that even dad will approve of. The original tutorial was from BluDor Magazine, but it’s gone and do wish it can come back. I hereby share a simple tutorial according to my personal understanding, it’s easy and versatile that you can sew stripes or halter at your options.
