There’s nothing like waking up very early on a Monday and getting work out of the way before lunchtime. It’s the best feeling in the world, especially if you also happen to be running on strong coffee.
Now that I’ve gotten work out of the way, let’s get some sewing done! I give you here the tutorial for my birthday skirt. This DIY skirt, like I said, is inspired by a Burberry Prorsum piece. Hope you like it!
A – Half of desired width. Mine was 50″ in total. I like full skirts. I stand at 5 feet and has a 34-inch hip.
B – Desired length. Measure from the true waist or where you want your waistline to lie. Measure from the true waist if you want a high-waist tabbed skirt.
A1 = A / B1 = B
C – Hip measurement + 4 inches.
D – Waistline width x 2. Mine was 4 inches in total.
E = D
Your tab can be longer or shorter. The length is up to you. Or your waist measurement.
Note: Do not forget allowances for all pieces.
You will also need elastic (must fit your desired waistline width), two buttons, & matching thread.
