As some of you may remember I loooove to shop in vintage stores where I can find clothes of excellent quality in a very good prices, sometimes though there is the problem with it's size. :/ I don't remember, if I mentioned before that I enjoy to re-make the clothes I find in second hand shops and create totally new garments out of it. If I didn't today is going to be the first time.
Let me introduce you to how to make an asymmetric skirt tutorial :D
Basically what you need is a skirt approx 10 sizes too big for you, made from fabric you love and 4 attaching snaps buttons. It has to be a simple skirt (maybe like a pencil skirt or one with the rubber around the waist). Remember it is crucial for it to be simple! The reason for it is that you need to get a rectangular piece of fabric out of it.
Once you have an rectangular the only thing is to attach the snaps to it. One part of first snap you attach to the very (lets say) left corner and its second part you have to fit to your waist size. Once you will do it rectangular will fit you and should stay around your waist. You are left now just with 3 snaps. One its part you attach to loose part of skirt, the other one you need to measure and attach to the core part of the dress. Once done it is finished- asymmetric skirt is ready.
I hope I explained it right- below you can see the pic-tutorial how the buttons are being attached and my look in this skirt.
How do you like this project and it's final effect?
