The Campus Closet: DIY Draped Skirt
I stopped into SAS fabric store the other day looking for materials for a school project. While I was there I came across some awesome knit fabrics for only two dollars. They had a ton of potential for anyone’s wardrobe, so I decided to get crafty. In today’s day and age we shy away from creating our own clothes, but sometimes it can be so simple and fun.
I put together this DIY wrap skirt project I came across. It’s easy, affordable, and looks adorable when on the go. Wear over tights in the winter, or pair with a tank in the springtime.
Step 1: Make sure your fabric is the right size to fit around your waist 2.5 times. Then take the fabric and wrap it around one time.
Step 2: Wrap the fabric around yourself again.
Step 3: Take the extra fabric and twist it once.
Step 4: Twist the fabric a second time, making sure it's extra tight.
Step 5: Take the remaining fabric and wrap it around yourself. Tuck it into the top of the skirt.
Bonus: You can take a needle and thread here for extra security if you plan on wearing more than once!
Step 6: Pair with a pair of tights, or wear over a swimsuit and enjoy your new skirt created by you!
