Wide Pleat Wrap Skirt | Cotton & Curls
Wrap skirts are great! Easy to pop on (and you can fasten it to any length!). Don’t let the pleats on this skirt scare you away from trying to create this pretty piece - it’s all about pinning, pinning, pinning! This tutorial uses buttons to fasten the skirt, but there’s nothing stopping you from extending the waistband so you can tie the skirt closed.

Neoprene Mini Skirt | A Pair & A Spare
That’s right, neoprene - as in wetsuit fabric! Normally I would run a mile from any piece of clothing made from this material, but made into a flirty little pink mini skirt it has won me over! The fabric gives it a lovely structual quality and actually looks quite comfy! Plus the beauty of neoprene is you don’t have to hem it or add a zip.

Skirt From A Shirt | Cleverly Inspired
I always see these amazing DIYs from people who have found retro furniture and vintage dresses from their local op shops. I, on the other hand, only ever find ugly dresses with shoulder pads and a surplus of John Grisham novels. And shirts. Tons and tons of mens shirts. Well here’s a great way to actually use these shirts - a cute skirt! Try to find ones that are made from cotton (lovely and light) not polyester (sweaty and ew).

Sequin Skirt | Anna + Evers
The other day when I was window shopping ASOS, I came across this gorgeous metallic & lace tshirt dress. Well unfortunately though I would love to own it, it’s a little out of my price range right now. Then a serendipitous event occured and I discovered this sequin skirt DIY! I’m not sure how easy it is to sew sequin fabric, but I’m willing to give it a try!

Ribbon Mini Skirt | Anna + Evers
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!)

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.

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!

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!

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.
