diy lace skirt






The skirt before it got a makeover!
You'll need an old skirt, lace fabric, scissor, seam ripper, pins, ruler
Step 1: Steam rip sides of skirt.
Seams are ripped on each side.
Step 2: Lay lace over skirt.  Make sure the lace is longer than the skirt.  Cut lace to fit skirt.
Step 3: Pin lace to skirt.
Step 4: Sew lace to both sides of skirts.
Step 5: Trim ends of lace.  Do not cut lace at top of skirt.
Step 6: Cut lace along zipper. You will have raw edges. Use a zigzag stitch along zipper to secure. The top of lace, iron and sew along top of skirt.
 

Hope you enjoy the tutorial.  Lace is one of the most popular trends for spring.  This is an easy way to incorporate lace in your wardrobe for $15! My khaki skirt is from Banana Republic.  I was going to sell it online, but I figured I could revamp the skirt.  The lace was purchased at Joann's.  Make sure you take the skirt with you, so you can measure how much lace you'll need for your project.
