My love for ankara fabric and bare shoulder lately is really overwhelming, so I decided to pair my two favourites – off-the-shoulder top and ankara skater skirt together. I wore this ankara skater skirt with the bralet that I made for Christmas here.
This outfit is me just playing dress-up and I’m so in love with it.
How I made the skater skirt, continue after the jump…
All you’ll need:
- Sewing machine
- Measuring tape
- Office pins
First, you cut 2 rectangular pieces for the waist band which will be the waist measurement and add 2inches. Place a stitch witchery on the wrong side of one fabric. Then sew the order rectangle together.
Then for the skater, you fold your fabric twice to form 4 joined square.
To cut the waist measurement; measure your waist around you belly button with a tape, mine is 28, the radius will be r=28/2π, where π = 3.14 and note the radius of your waist measurement. At the joined corner, where all four square meet, measure your waist radius, add 2 inches and pin it.
To cut the skirt length; From the waist measurement cut, place you tape from there, add 2 inches to your desired skirt length.
Attach the waist band to the skirt, then sew together. Fold the waist band ends by 1 inch. Place your zipper and the sew it. The hem of the skirt, fold 1inch twice and sew it round.
Viola! You’ve got yourself skater skirt!
