I made this fun skirt for Valentine’s Day and loved how it turned out. Because lace is fairly complicated, I feel this is more of an intermediate level, but still somewhat easy! Let’s start off with the materials you’ll need.
I recommend finding the longest width lace you can because that’ll mean less work for you. I only needed two tiers of my lace to get my desired length. If I was working with lace that was only 2 inches wide, it would take about 12 tiers to get my length. (I picked up this lace from the Goldenwest Swap Meet in Huntington Beach.)
I prefer a thicker band for this skirt because it provides more support. This one is great.
I got a slightly lighter color because the contrast adds dimension to the skirt. I made my lining a separate skirt completely, so I can wear it alone if I want. I just use it as a slip of sorts under the lace skirt. I love knit because you don’t have to finish the hem if you don’t want to, and the stretch is always forgiving.
