Materials List

  • 8'' Fabric shears
  • Vinyl netting fabric for skirt exterior
  • Jersey fabric for skirt lining
  • Pins
  • Sewing machine and thread


  1. Start by cutting your outer skirt fabric. To determine the required width, measure your waist and multiply by 2. This will be the width of your fabric to use. Next, measure from your waist to where you want the skirt to fall. Add 3” to this measurement and this will be the length of your fabric used for the skirt. Cut your outer skirt fabric according to these measurements. Repeat step 1 for the lining fabric, yet keep in mind the fabric for this part can be shorter.

  2. Now, begin to sew the side seam of the outer skirt fabric. Fold the fabric in half and align the short, raw edges. Pin the fabric together and sew the seam from the top to the bottom edge. Repeat this step for the skirt lining.

  3. To join the two skirt pieces together, place the lining inside the outer skirt. Match up the two side seams and pin the two skirts together the entire circumference around the top edge. Sew the two skirt pieces together.

  4. You'll need to construct a casing through which you will pull the elastic to support the waist. Turn the top edge of the skirt over by 1/4” and press with an iron (finger press if your fabric isn't suitable for ironing or extreme heat). Turn the skirt over again, this time by 1-1/4”, press (or finger press again) and pin in place. Now sew down the folded edge of the fabric but leave a 4” gap unsewn for inserting the elastic to fit around the waist.

  5. Attach a safety pin to the end of a 1” wide piece of elastic and thread it through the casing in the top of the skirt. Check the sizing by trying on the skirt and adjusting the length of the elastic as necessary, to create a snug fit around the waist. Sew the two ends of the elastic together and stitch up the 4” hole.

  6. To finish this DIY skirt, hem the bottom edges of the lining and outer skirt fabrics by turning them up ½” to the incorrect side and sewing. Alternatively, if you're using fabrics that do not fray you can choose to leave them unhemmed for a unique look.

This skirt honestly looks like something that came directly out of Vogue Magazine. I love how this pattern plays off of the '90s grunge vibe while adding a modest hem and dynamic depth. I can't wait to pair this skirt with a chunky white sneaker and seeing my friends' jealous faces!
