DIY Zip Skirt

DIY Style Jan 15, 2016

DIY Zip Skirt

I’m really excited to share with you an episode of the DIY mini series that I’ve made with Starworld! If you live in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam or the Philippines and tune in to your TV regularly, you’ve probably already seen it when it played in December. For the rest of you, I give you one of the easiest zip projects ever. And yes, it goes against all the conventions of how you would actually insert a zip (sorry to all you purists!) but that’s what makes it quick, easy and so so doable.

Watch the video here:

DIY Zip Skirt

Thanks to the amazing Starworld team for coming into my studio and making it the most fun experience… ever!

You need

  • A skirt in a fabric that won’t fray when cut like jersey or stretch (mine was from H&M)
  • A zip
  • Scissors
  • A sewing machine
  • Thread
  • Pin

How to

1. Start by pinning your zip to the skirt.

2. Sew it down all the way around the skirt, making sure to fold the ends under so they are nice and tidy.

3. Once you’ve properly attached the zip to the skirt, use your scissors to cut the split in the fabric of the skirt.


Stay tuned another episode coming soon – we’ll be talkin’ tassels. 🙂

Wearing: DIY Skirt, Grana Tank, Boda Skins jacket, Mode Collective heels.

Ps. This year I’ll be focusing very much on video – it’s the perfect medium for all the projects I do and I’m looking forward to being challenged to do something really different. Lotttttttsssss of ideas in my head right now. Anything you want to see?
