Sew it Yourself: Scallop-Edged Skirt + A Giveaway with Michael Levine/LowPrice Fabric

Today, I’m super excited to get to share with you all a really fun DIY that is perfect for the Fall season we are in.
Wool-blend fabric + the color green are two super on-trend fashion staples. So today, we’re combining these elements with my favorite, a scallop edge… win, win, win, y’all!

Step One: Take the fabric, unroll it, and wrap it around your waist to where the ends overlap about 10″. That will be the width of your fabric, now cut to your desired hem length. Make sure the top edge is where you want your skirt to hit on your waist.
Step Two: You should now have one large rectangle of fabric. Lay your fabric out and along the bottom edge, use your marking utensil and round tracing object to draw a series of semi circles along the edge.

Step Three: Cut along the lines you drew. This should create a scalloped edge.

Step Four: Measure the knit elastic around your waist. Stretch it to fit your waist comfortably.

Step Five: Align the top edge of your skirt to overlap the knit elastic by 1/4″ on the wrong side. Stretch the elastic (not the fabric) as you sew. Be sure to sew over the entire top of the skirt.

Step Six: With right sides together, sew the skirt down the back seam, including the elastic.
Wear with pride!
*Optional: to add a lining, cut the same width as you did for the skirt, but cut the length about 2″ shorter. Attach to the skirt along the top before step 5.

  1. Any apparel fabrics, especially lightweight prints for blouses and some great suiting or wool blends for skirts and jackets! Oooh and knits of any kind. Most of the fabric stores near me cater to quilters so good apparel material is hard to find.

  2. I’m loving the yellow wool blend. I’d love to make a skirt for myself to wear with leggings. I’m wanting to make clothes for myself but have no idea where to start. Do you use a form?

  3. I was just on their site last night looking for a navy wool heavier weight fabric. I want to sew my little guy a varsity style jacket with the faux leather sleeve patches!

  4. Cute skirt! :-) very wintery :-)

    I’m definitely going to have to check out those wool fabrics. Fabric choices over here in Norway are very limited and the temperatures are really starting so I better get a move on;-)
