Double fabrics skirt DIY

This winter, I have seen a lot of double-fabrics skirts, with thick fabrics. I wanted to buy one but none had me convinced : too wide, too tight, too short, too long,… I wanted to make one, but this type of thick fabric is a little bit expensive, so I just kept that DIY project in the back of my mind.

Now that spring is here, I took the leap with some lighter fabrics… and it was pretty easy! I would suggest to use a light fabric for the middle, and to use a thicker fabric for the rest of skirt, in order to have a nice, constrated volume.

What you also need : an elastic band, a sewing machine, pins, and that’s all!

1 – Cut a rectangle out of your black fabric : width shoud be your waist + 25 cm and height whatever you want your skirt to fall

2- Fold the ends toward the middle of the rectangle, on the width.

3 – Trace a trapezoid – this should be where you want the 2nd fabric to be

4 – Cut out the trapezoid ; and use this as a pattern to cut the 2nd fabric (leave 2 to 5 cm for the seam)

5 – Sew the trapezoid into the black fabric (reverse side)

6 – Sew the seams for the bottom and the top (leaving a few centimeters for the elastic band at the top)

7 – Insert the elastic band with a chopsticks, and you’re done!
