Make this simple DIY Wool Skirt

DIY Wool Skirt

The mini is back!

And I guess so is the maxi, so either way you’re set. But if you feel like you want to add a simple mini to your collection, this is a great place to start. Easy to make, with a timeless look that you’ll wear over and over. Scroll down to see how to make one for yourself!

DIY Wool Skirt


Lay a skirt, or a paper pattern on the wrong side of the fabric. The paper pattern we're using here is copied from an existing skirt. Trace around and cut. You should end up with a complete mirrored front piece, and two separate back pieces. 


Cut the pieces for a waistband as well. A long strip of rectangular fabric the same length as your waist will do. Cut two sets of this pattern and sew them together on the top seam. 


Sew the darts on the skirt pieces first if you decide to add them for a more form-fitting skirt.


Sew down the side seams of the skirt, and attach the waistband. Leave the back center seam open, we will install a zipper in the next step. 


The final step is to install an invisible zipper. A more detailed step-by-step on installing invisible zippers can be found here

I may have gone a little OTT on the French inspired styling here, but I thought why not? Luckily you can just as easily pair this skirt with a pair of sneaker and a knit.
