I am in love with the whole asymmetrical hemline. It doesn't matter if it is more flowy and feminine like in case of vokuhila skirts or really geometric and exact as this amazing skirt VeeVeeVouge wore here (Still thinking wether to do or not to do this one too)... And therefore it screamed DIY after I again went into my local Ikea and bought another meter of "Ditte", plain black cotton. So enjoy!
What we need:
A good fitting pencil skirt with no stretch ( or just a tiny, tiny bit) OR a pattern
1m x 1,5m fabric ( I used 100% cotton, some polyester/viscose part would be great -> less wrinkles)
transparent paper + measuring tape
typical sewing stuff including a sewing machine
3. You should get one front piece and two back pieces.
5. Then I sewed along the bag seam leaving the part for the the zipper open. Iron it.
Important: On the pictures you can see that there is also a slit on the back part, you can or cannot leave this part open at this point. Silly me decided later on and had to open the stitches -.-
8. Since there are a lot of visible edges it not comes to folding, ironing and sewing along them so they look nice and neat.
10. Draw a parallel line about 4 cm away from the line of your waistband line...
12. Sew the pieces together, the open ends being the ones at the middle of the back part (zipper...)
14. After folding it into the skirt, ironing and sewing along it you got a nice and (more or less) neat waitsband (messed up zipper... argh!)
Aaaand that's it. I know it looks a bit confusing and this is certainly no project for someone who did never sew and/or never made a skirt, but for inspiration purpose and since I love this skirt, I hope you still enjoyed it (at least the outfit?). Thank you for surfing by
