My Designs - Preppy Pinafore Style Skirt

Sunday, 5 November 2017

A few days ago I suddenly had the desire to make my own skirt. Yes I know it's kind of strange and a totally on-the-spot decision, but I thought, hey, it's a new year why not try something new?

Jenny (Gossip Girl)
So I went on youtube and found a really good, simple 'How to make a skirt' Tutorial and decided to do it. The next day I went out to the fabric store, which was a very new and kind of weird experience for me, and picked out some fabric. In the end it turns out I didn't buy the right fabric as I chose a non-stretchy material instead of an elasticated material which was used in the video, however I just added a zip into the skirt which turned out to actually be quite easy! The whole process of making the skirt surprisingly only took me a day (considering I was sewing it by hand) and was actually quite enjoyable. 

After making the skirt I decided I wanted to do something different and make it into a pinafore style dress as I had seen Jenny (from gossip girl) wear one and I thought It looked pretty.   

I'm really pleased with the way it turned out and will definitely be doing something like this again!
