Isn’t this a great way to make over a denim skirt?! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know my love of all things ribbon & trim, so I was quite taken with this makeover. The mixture of dark blue, gold and black is a particularly good combo, and if you’re not keen on sewing (or you don’t have a machine), some fabric glue or tape is a quick way to add it on (good for those of us who want a quick fix to wear tonight!)
Stand & Deliver Skirt | C&C
I recently discovered C&C whilst link-hopping (you never know where you’ll end up!) and I’m so impressed with her amazing sewing projects. Though some projects are for the more advanced sewer (this one is a little more complicated - pockets!) there are some super easy ones too like this square top.
Leather Fringe Skirt | OutsaPop
I love the juxtaposition of leather with fringe - a tough fabric in a girly swingy style! This would look great with tights and a tshirt. If you use craft glue you won’t have to go through the stress of trying to sew leather onto your skirt (trust me, needles will break!) You will probably need a couple of old pairs of leather pants to cut up - you could even try using two pairs in differing shades like light and dark brown.
Brightly Lined Lace Mini Skirt | A Pair & A Spare
Wow, I’ve never seen a mini skirt look so tough! I love the combo of the lined skirt with the tough leather jacket and black boots. If you can’t get your hands on a lace mini skirt, you could always make one too - there are lots of gorgeous lace fabrics out there. Try Burdastyle for easy skirt how-tos.
Peplum Skirt | A Pair & A Spare
Peplum - weird name, pretty style. This tutorial does require a bias skirt to cut up, but once you’ve got that, construction is a lot easier. If you want to be ahead of the fashion pack, peplum anything is the way to go - AP&AS says that they’re going to be huge and she knows what she’s talking about! Haha! And those adorable heels? Keep an eye out for her tutorial in the future!
Velvet Circle Skirt | Chictopia
There’s something about velvet that makes me think of the Holidays. I know that velvet is an acquired taste but Chictopia makes it seem…chic. Pair with some cute tights and your cutest flats and you’re set for Christmas Day! And circle skirts are so easy to make plus - pockets!
Polka Dot Pintuck Skirt | Cotton & Curls
This is a perfect example of a tutorial that could be super easy or more advanced. And it all comes back to my favourite fabric - ruffle! This is what I consider a really flirty skirt. To get a bit more ‘pouf’, wear a slip underneath. I’m going on eBay and etsy now to try and find some pretty ruffle fabric to make this. Plus: elastic waist. Heaven!
Easy Full Skirt | Very Purple Person
I know I’ve posted many skirt tutorials before, but the thing I like about this one is the paper bag waist. It’s always good to have multiple skirts in your wardrobe right?
Block Painted Skirt | Style Bubble
I love absolutely everything about this outfit! I never would combine blue and orange but this looks gorgeous. I also never would have thought to paint a skirt so there you go. The painting on this skirt is done using acrilyc paint and fabric paint medium. You should be able to get fabric paint medium at your local craft store (Aussies - I know you can get it at Spotlight!) Style Bubble is an incredible blog and I encourage y’all to go there and check it out.
Sweater To Skirt DIY | Dana’s Fashion Blog
It’s going to be Christmas soon (less than four months!). Sorry. I know it’s hard to hear but it’s true. So you might as well embrace the fact and start on your Christmas craft! This is the cutest skirt, and great to use that um… ‘lovely’ Christmas sweater your Nana gave you!
DIY Skirt With Pockets | Angela Osborn
I’m a bit in love with skirts with pockets. The’re pretty and practical. There’s nothing worse than running an errand and thinking - where the heck am I going to put my keys!? Plus I’m the kind of person who likes putting their hands in their pockets when they’re nervous/cold/strolling. I found the perfect fabric during my clean up this weekend and I’m totes going to make this skirt this weekend!
Circle Wrap Skirt | The Crafting Chicks
I think I’ve finally accepted the reality that the only thing I’m good at sewing is skirts. But there’s no prolem with that because skirts and dresses are my unofficial uniform. I adore this simple flippy skirt (twirly skirts are the bomb) and the colour is amazing. I’m going to be buying some fabric this weekend and make this, pronto!
Reversible Scallop Hem Skirt | Bored And Crafty
Wasn’t I just saying yesterday I would prefer a scallop hem skirt rather than scallop hem shorts!? Scallop hem is my heaven. Plus reversible! Two awesome patterns in one! Reversible is the best.
Jersey Maxi Skirt | Megan Nielsen Design
Are you a maxi or mini skirt girl? I’m all the way a maxi skirt girl! I love the way it swishes around and also: no having to shave your legs. Double win. But it’s hard to find pretty maxi skirts at the moment so I think I need to make my own. I think I might get myself some dark brown jersey to go with my new wedges and sew one up tomorrow!
Chalk Lines Skirt | One Avian Daemon
This isn’t the quickest sewing project, but you have to admit that the outcome is super amazing right? I’ve never tried adding piping to an outfit before, but I really like the ‘blocking’ that comes from the piping. Hmm, it might need to be a ‘long term’ sewing project!
