How To DIY - Pleated Floral Maxi Silk Chiffon Skirt

Posted on

Anyway, as you can see it’s a maxi skirt. It was insanely easy to sew, AND it’s made out of a beautiful, flowy, lightweight fabric which is just perfect for summer. I even have a tutorial and worksheet so that you can make your own pleated skir.

Step 1: For the pattern you can BurdaStyle 02/2013 #133 and lengthen it to the floor. Or, draft your own pattern using my free tutorial and downloadable worksheet.

Step 2: Our inspiration skirt is made from a chiffon print fabric.

This elegant, sheer fabric is quite limp, with a beautiful drape. It has a soft, supple, thin hand and a flat, crepe-like texture.

A very light, diaphanous fabric, that a lining be of necessity depending on the application.
