    If it hasn't already occured to you to ask, check whether these jeans fit her as jeans. He may not realize that you are only changing the legs into a skirt, not cutting down or enlarging the waist and hips.

      I knew that I shouldnt have let myself in for this!!!

    I did this for my daughter with too tight jeans and added inserts down the side.  My husband patiently took out all the stitching so that I had  seam allowances which helped reduce the fray factor.  Here are some pictures.
