DIY Couture High Low Skirt

A trend that was hot last year and even hotter this year is the High-Low skirt.  My fabric choice for this skirt is chiffon.  It presents itself to be feminine and soft.  I love the way the silhouette of the skirts sways when you walk; it’s so graceful.

Just like every other article of clothing purchased in retail, quality skirt like these do run pretty high; between $75 to about a couple hundred dollars.  Who has that kind of money to spend on a skirt?  I surely don’t so I decided to make a couple of my own. Below is a list of supplies I used to make this skirt.  This DIY is easy and fun.  I’m sure you will probably make more than one. (Hey! That rhymes!)

Note:  When shopping for fabric, always check the Clearance first.  I found the multi-colored one for less than $5/yd.  You will need about 1.5-2 yards depending on your height.  Also, don’t be in a hurry to purchase fabric. Wait for the sales or 50% off coupons. One more key thing to remember is JoAnn’s and Hancock Fabrics always has .99 sales on their patters. NEVER pay full price on patterns. Keep a look out for the sales on those and stock up when you can. My local fabric store has excellent sales every week. My husband has to pay me to stay out of there. LOL!

Thrifty Thursday: Transform a Thrifted Dress

Here is another photoshoot that I did with my litte brother.  I kew I wanted to take a picture in a full skirt but unfortunately I was not able to find one.  When I walked into my local goodwill, I was amazed when I saw this dress.  I like it because I wanted to show people how you can transform something so hideous into something so beautiful.  I simply cut the top off and made a full skirt.  Thanks to my brother, the photoshoot turned out awesome. I hope you all are inspired to not turn your nose up at all thrifted finds.  Turn it into something AMAZING!
