DIY: Lace pencil skirt

'If there is magic on the planet,

it is

contained in the water.'

 Listen guys, made this skirt in less than thirty minutes, and I can barely sew, so if you can sew it would take you ten! I wasn't too sure it would come out properly so I didn't take photos during the process -sorry :(

I simply laid another pencil skirt on top of the fabric as a pattern then cut out.
Pinned the fabric together making sure the seam was in the back.
Then folded the fabric and straight stitched down. Voila!
I was making this to wear over my bikini so I didn't put a waist band in, but I would take this another step forward by adding a waist band with an inch wide elastic.
I would recommend finishing the hem. But not too bad for a beach cover up huh? ;) I gotta learn to use my sewing machine :(

I also have a tight mini skirt in the same colour that I'm planning on wearing under the lace for another look.Here are clearly laid out instructions from Cotton and Curls on how to make a pencil skirt. Let me know if you try this DIY and please share how you learned to sew. 

Thanks for stopping by :)
