Fringe is fabulous, isn’t it? It’s not the first time I’ve blogged about my love for fringe (jacket, clutch, dress, earrings, trim) – ha!
This post was inspired by my newest fringe necklace from Nicole Lee, the necklace is a MUST have this season because it’s mixing two of my favorite trends for spring, tribal/global and fringe. Check it out more, here.
It’s perfection and with fringe constantly on my mind, I thought a fringe skirt must be on the to-do list and for good reason because we’ve seen this skirt all over the place (here, here, here)! Recreating this look is pretty simple, I used a Palmer/Pletsch skirt pattern from the McCall Pattern company HERE, I really love this pattern because it’s help you achieve the perfect fit and um, hello!?! those side welt pockets are love at first sight!! The best way to not have a home sewn looking garment are the details, like this welt pocket, and of course, exceptional fit!
To make this DIY Fringe Skirt you will need:
- Skirt pattern, McCalls Pattern M6757 (Palmer/Pletsch)
- Faux Suede fabric (18 ” extra than recommend for skirt pattern)
- Scissors or rotary cutting tool (and mat),
- sewing supplies
- Alter the length of you skirt pattern by 10 – 18″ (depending on your height).
- Cut your fabric using your lengthened skirt pattern.
- Baste the sides of your sew pattern, try on and decide where you want the trim to start,
my trim starts a little above the knee.
- Mark side seams and remember not to sew side seams (and center back seams) beyond that point.
- Continue to sew pattern according to pattern direction, skip hemming the skirt.
- Once the skirt is completed, cut your trim 1/4″ wide.
*You can use a ruler or a steady hand to evenly cut your trim with scissors or rotary cutting tool.
That’s it! I think the hardest part of this skirt will be your welt pockets which are easy to skip if you are new to sewing but they are so worth it if you are familiar with putting them in!
So whether you jump on the fringe band wagon via Nicole Lee or DIY, both will be perfection to add to your wardrobe this season!
