Today I attempted this:
First I found a cute ruffle skirt at a local thrift store, and found a pair of shorts that would look cute with the fabric.
I turned the skirt inside out, took out the elastic, and put the shorts on a table using the edge as my straight line. For better results you will want to find a straight line and cut the jeans or shorts now. Use a rotary cutter for the straightest lines possible.
Next you pin the skirt to the shorts. **Make sure not to pin the fabric too tight or it will not be flowy** (is flowy a word? if not it should be ;p)
After the perimeter is pinned I rolled the skirt up and used hair clips to hold it in place while I sewed, again if you cut your pants/shorts this is not necessary.
Finally sew to create your seam between the shorts and skirt. You will want to do a double seam for added strength to the seam. So just go around twice, the first time removing pins as you go and the second time 1/4" away from the first seam (easiest if you do the second towards the cut or the 'outside' of the first seam.)
