You may have seen this DIY faux leather skirt over on Pretty Providence. Today is my day to share it. I really love how easy this was. Truth: this was a last minute project I had to resort to after my original project ended up being too similar to another project they had on their blog. Working extremely fast, I was able to quickly bust this thing out and now it’s one of my favorite pieces.
It’s so easy it’s almost a joke. The key is finding stretchy faux leather material. I got mine at a swap meet in Huntington Beach, but you could probably use this material too.
This is so easy because it doesn’t require any zippers, buttons, or elastics. I simply used one of my knit skirts that I know fits well to help me trace a pattern. I made sure to cut it wider to allow for seam allowances and alterations. It ended up fitting pretty well after following the steps above, so I didn’t bother adding darts. I really love that it’s a little edgy–not my usual style.
