Today's guest poster is Mo from Who Is That Girl Mo? and another member of Stitch Once, Rip Twice! She let me be her "plus one"at Mimi G's conference, which she mentioned in this post. So basically, we're fabric shopping buddies now. :) I even shared a few tips on how to bargain with the fabric vendors, like I do when I head to the swap meet.
First check out her post below on how to draft and sew your own circle skirt. Then, check out her blog for her fashion and sewing tips! She's a full-service blogging sewist, for real! Drafts a garment, shares the tutorial, sews it up, and shows how she styles it. Awesome!
Hey! I'm Mo and my blog is all about sharing my personal style and diy projects. I started my blog just before Christmas last year and since then my style has evolved tremendously. I also love to refashion pieces of clothing with little to no sewing. Easy and fun is what works for me. I'm also a beginner sewer and today I'll be sharing a tutorial on how to make a circle skirt. I hope it will inspire you to make one of your own. :-) Thanks!
You should know by now how obsessed I was with skater skirts. If you didn't you can read about it in this post. Since I didn't have a skater skirt I decided to make one on my own. I read some blog tutorials and watched a couple of youtube videos and took different pieces of info from what I learned and combined it. It was pretty easy to make. The most tedious part for me was sewing the hem of the skirt. It was so long all I kept thinking was "FML" and when I finally finished, of course I didn't like the skirt. I was extremely tired but I actually do like it and now that I have made my own I am no longer obsessed over the skater skirt trend. Yeah, I know it's only been a couple of weeks but that's me, I get over some things quickly. Here's my tutorial.
1 1/2 - 2 yards fabric
7 in or longer zipper
chalk or marking pencil
Tee (old) - Forever 21
Cardigan (old) - H&M Men's
Skirt - DIY
Boots - Dillards
Necklace and bracelets - DIY
Thanks Mo! I love the one skater skirt I own, and now I know how to make more! It'll be a good reason to cut into that huge fabric stash that I keep adding to. :)
