DIY Hi Low Bodycon Skirt

HiLo Skirt 2I stumbled across this post draft a little while ago documenting my making of this hi-low bodycon skirt last year. I have always been a little late with posting my projects, but hey at least I do!

I originally saw heaps of them on ASOS and thought it was an easy enough DIY project to attempt, especially after making my Stretch Maxi Skirt beforehand. I decided to use the same tubular technique.

I wanted to create more of a side hi low drape skirt with a larger cut out than the ones found on ASOS. I’m quite pleased with the results :)

Tools:

  • Sewing Machine
  • Jersey (I used a cotton elastane blend)
  • Pins
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Elastic

Tutorial:

Now finish off the hem. There are few ways to go about it with this kind of hemline.

  1. Raw hem
  2. Overlocked or zig zag hem
  3. Folded hem

Raw is obviously the easiest and if you picked the right fabric is completely presentable.

A folded hem is probably the neatest way to do this, but is also the most tedious due to the curves. If you plan to do this, remember to use a double needle.

The overlocked hem is a good middle ground and if you have an overlocker with matching thread I’d say go with this method.
