25 Oct

uhu

Me hice esta falda inspirada en la colección de Balenciaga primavera/verano ’13 siguiendo el tutorial de la creativa Geneva de A pair and a spare (haz click para ver su tutorial al completo). Os recomiendo de corazón que le echéis un vistazo a su blog de DIYs, ¡me encanta!

Espero que disfrutéis este tutorial y os pongáis mucho vuestra falda; la clásica combinación blanco&negro vuelve a estar muy de moda esta estación 🙂

I did myself this great skirt inspired in Balenciaga’s SS13 collection following the creative Geneva from A pair and a spare (click to see her full tutorial). I truly recommend you to have a look at her DIY blog, I love it!

I hope you enjoy this DIY, the classic balck & white combo is very in this season 🙂

You need: 

  • A simple black skirt
  • 1m (approx 1 yard) of white cotton fabric
  • 1m (approx 1 yard) of black cotton fabric
  • Dressmaker’s Scissors
  • Black and white thread
  • A Sewing machine
  • Measuring tape
  • Pins

or get a sewing kit here.

How to:
1. Cut your skirt into an asymmetric style (shorter on one side than the other). You can go quite short of the shorter edge (almost to your underwear line) because you are going to be adding the ruffled piece which will cover you.

2. Take your measuring tape and measure the edge of the asymmetric hem of the skirt all the way around.

3. Using the method I showed you here in the fluted hem skirt tutorial, create two circular hem pieces  in both black and white.

4. Pin the two black and white ruffled hem pieces together.

5. Sew the two together on the outside edge.

6. Turn inside out and the iron flat.

7. Pin the inner edge of the donut to the skirt with the white on the outside and the black on the inside (or vise versus if you perfer).

8. Sew along the hem and then sew along the edge with the zig zag stitch to reduce fraying.
