Stripe Skirt - Ripped from New Look

Added Aug 4, 2008

Plymouth, United...






Yep, saw this on the cover of a magazine, and thought “Pfffh, I can make that”. So I did. And I love it! I’m especially pleased with the way the pleats have made it really puffy and the button closure. The worst bit was sewing round and round the black ribbon, round and round and round…. also I didn’t have quite enough ribbon, so I had to make up the gap with black polyester fabric in strips. But I put it at the back so t wouldn’t e as noticeable.

Material Notes

White cotton twill (only used 1 metre!), black polyester ribbon in varying thicknesses, plastic button, zipper





New Look. So sue me. Actually, please, please don’t.

    Wow. Thanks for the comments, glad I’ve given you the solution to stripes! I’m not really sure if I can post a picture of the original? (New Look is a UK high street clothes store – they might have copyright issues.) Karencilla, I can’t see the V Beckham pic :(

    This is amazing. At first I was wondering where can I get striped fabric like that. Guess you can just sew your own.

    I’ve been thinking about how to make a skirt with stripes winding around it all summer, but this is the solution! Well done, it looks great!
