Sewing: 1 skirt+1 pair of jeans= a whole new skirt

Last fall I bought 2 skirts at the consignment shop nice and light fabric for the summer heat of southern Mississippi. I have been thinking I want a different waist band on them something fitted instead of elastic though.

I took them out of the trunk I have our summer clothes in along with a pair of jeans 1 of 2 I have left after switching to skirts and turned a skirt that looked like the one below into.....

And here they both are. There was a nice breeze yesterday and they swayed on the line as I took these pictures. As you can see it is still brown here with some green but spring is popping in with the maple, jasmine, and buds all over the wild crabapples, huckleberries, and dogwoods.
