DIY High Low Skirt

on March 11, 2013

I’ve been in a real DIY craze lately. High low skirts have been all over the media and I’ve been wanting one for a while. I found an old cover-up that I don’t wear any more and I thought it would be perfect for a DIY project. Whats even more awesome is that the cover-up is ombre!

The cover-up is from Joolay.

To start I cut off the top part but left about an inch or so of the elastic. This way I didn’t have to add an elastic band to hold up the skirt.

Then  I held up a skirt that has a good length up to my DIY skirt so I could get a sence of where to start cutting and how short it should be.

I also sewed a bit on the top because the band was too loose. When you sew make sure the skirt is inside out.

You can put fray check or hem the edges. This is my finished product! Let me know what you think.

I also made a bandeau with the top of the cover-up.

-Love, June
