DIY Skirt

This Skirt only took me a few hours (probably less if you have a sewing machine)! It's pretty easy to make and I'm quite sure you can make it in other materials rather than the sheer fabric I have used.

I followed this tutorial:

A pair and a Spare

I love these shoes so much and they are surprisingly comfy!

You Need:
1) 2 metres of fabric
2)Elastic (2/3 cm thick)
3) An iron
4)A needle and thread

To do:

  • Lay Out the fabric, along the 2m length edge fold the fabric over by about 3 cm
  • Iron this fold to keep it in place and to keep it level
  • You now need to fold along the bottom on this fold, to create a tube for the elastic to go through.
  •  The elastic can now be threaded through the tube of fabric to create the gathered waist band, sew together the two elastic ends.
  • Then simply sew the fabric together and hem.

Underneath on these photos I have a H&M basic skirt but I do plan on attatching a black skirt myself :)
