DIY Tiered Polka Dot Skirt

Basically this skirt is three different length circle skirts layered together. Below is a pattern and guide for making a circle skirt. For this project you will make three in different lengths, and one out of lining fabric that matches your skirt with the longest length (if you need lining). For all of them we suggest using 1.5 x or 2x your waist (the below pattern says 2 x but 1.5 x is also fine if you want less volume) so that there is space to get in and out of your skirt.

Materials

  • 2 M OF SILK FABRIC
  • 2 M OF LINING FABRIC
  • FABRIC SCISSORS
  • PINS
  • SEWING MACHINE

1

Start by cutting out the lining of your skirt – if you are using lining. To do this, use this tutorial to cut a circle skirt out of lining. As mentioned, you can use between 1.5 – 2 x your natural waist depending on how much volume you want for your skirt.

Next, cut three different tiers for your skirt. Use the same circle skirt tutorial as linked above. You can make your tiers any length you like but we used 20cm (8 in), 30cm (12 in) and 50cm (20 in). Because of the weave of the fabric, we didn’t have to sew a hem which was great. If yours needs a hem, sew a hem on each layer.T

3

Cut and sew an elastic waistband for your skirt to match your waist.

4

Pin all your layers onto the waistband, making sure to stretch the elastic out so that it matches the size of the waistband.

5

Sew your layers to the elastic. To do this, stretch out the elastic to ensure that the fabric gathers once the elastic isn’t stretched anymore. This also allows you to get in and out of the skirt!

Voila!
