Lace is EVERYWHERE these days. From dresses, to skirts and tops – Lace is no longer just for table tops and wedding dresses..
Inspired by all the lovely white and nude colored lace outfits I have seen – I thought it was time to make a casual AND easy lace skirt. Between a few toddler naps this past weekend, I used my dress form to create a few skirt mock ups:
The long and short of it:
The longer version looked way too formal – so I decided to go with a shorter skirt length. Also, using plain old elastic at the waistband would help make the skirt more casual and fun.
Drafting the pattern – The skirt pattern is a basic rectangle. The dimensions are 21″ x 16″. Hello legs! This is going to be a flirty short skirt..
I chose the fabric because of the scalloped edge. Number one – I don’t have to hem the skirt.. and Number two – it makes for a nice custom feature. However, because of the scalloped hem the fabric isn’t wide enough to cut on the fold. So unlike the pattern above, the skirt will have 2 sides seams.
Stay tuned as I share the DIY steps and the finished garment.
